Update 495. New Class 172 DMU no. 172333 at Old Hill & Acocks Green, 02/08/11

Just managed to get KC walked around the park & made it to the station to see 172333 pass through. Must say I’m looking forward to the introduction of these new trains in the coming weeks, as the old Class 150 units are very noisy and in this weather, very hot.

This run was for invited guests and was also mentioned on the local BBC news.
