Superman Cheap Day Returns

Continuing on a transport theme from my previous post, during my change at Manchester Piccadilly on my way back from Sheffield this afternoon, I couldn't help but be drawn towards a rather unusually liveried Virgin Pendolino waiting to depart on the 1405 to London Euston:

At the very front, it doesn't look immediately different from an ordinary member of the class, but, continuing down the platform….

Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

No, it

No, it's a 125mph tilting train!

In full Superman Returns promotional vinyls! Was a very interesting change from the usual procession of trains!

But it admits it isn't as fast as a speeding bullet….. Never mind!

Anyway, I walked further down to see the name of the fleet member that had been chosen. I thought the most likely would be Virgin Hero, or maybe Virgin Lionheart or Virgin Warrior. Which one was it?

City of Stoke–on–flipping–Trent. Oh well.
