The pristine GWR loco would soon loose its Green livery

and metamorphise into the Red Hogwarts Express livery.

At approximately 13:30 hrs on 18th August 2008,

whilst at Leeds,

 

I noticed this Kings Cross train operated by National Express

had its rear power unit connected the wrong way round,

i.e. the streamlined end forward?

.

Is this something new (to me at least),

or did they have a shortage of units pointing in the right direction?
