    I know this is off subject but im interested in the DMU vehicle creeping into shot on the right.

    It looks like it has a Wolverhampton City crest applied to the bodyside. Was this a regular embellishment or a one-off for this unit? Any info is most welcome as I am trying to write a history of modern day depot logos and was not aware of this one. I know Tyseley liked to apply a bear but this is the first time I have seen this logo.

    Thanks in advance

    At that time Tyseley had 55032 (55032 in Midline livery) and 55034 on the books still in normal use unless it's one of the route learning single cars such as 55001 or 55017

    Would suggest its the Corby coat of arms and either 55004 or 55011. Dates from when they were used on NSE sponsored Kettering-Corby shuttles.

    Thanks for all the replys. Probably classed more as an embellishment than a depot logo but interesting all the same.
