153308 & 158883 Quarrington 25 July 2009

153308 & 158883 pass the chicken farm at Quarrington with the 07:35 Nottingham to Skegness East Midlands Trains service on 25 July 2009. Rauceby station can just be seen in the far distance beyond the level crossing by the trees. You can see where East Midlands got the idea for their livery from, as the colour bands on the ends of the Class 153 bear a striking resemblance to the South West Trains livery on 158883. Several South West Trains 158s have strayed away from the former Southern Region in recent years, even reaching as far as Scotland!
