Stockport, 3rd November 2023 Part 5: DMUs

Since my previous visit in 2018, the Class 142 Pacers are gone, and the Class 175s have been hastily removed from traffic under a dark cloud. The Class 156s, built 1987-89, look smart enough, but apparently they have corrosion issues, rather like the slightly older class 150s, built from 1985..
