Exciting news from the nation's favourite ROSCO...
Porterbrook Leasing has signed a contract with LNWR to repaint 72 Class 150/2 vehicles operated by Arriva Trains Wales, valued at £1MWith franchising stalled this is indeed good news for the UK's increasingly beleaguered rolling stock supply chain!
But what's this?
The 150/2s are operated by Arriva Trains Wales - part of Arriva - owned by Deutsche Bahn.
They will be repainted by LNWR - owned by Arriva - part of Deutsche Bahn.
And the job is being funded by Porterbrook - part-owned by Deutsche Bank.
Deutschland über alles indeed!
