Class 156 SPT Livery

Welcome to, Scotland's online railway community. The group is for any rail enthusiast interested in the railways and trains of Scotland. It not only consists of the wiki that you're reading now, but a busy online forum and mailing list, which was accessible to registered users. From April 2024 the forum has closed, with a replacement started on
SPT Livered Class 156s

Originally only 156501-514 were in Strathclyde colours of Orange and Black, however SPT reached a deal whereby they took on extra Class 156 units as passenger use continued to increase. As a result, an additional 13 Class 156s units were repainted into Carmine/Cream Livery, and based at Corkerhill Depot.
