The Class 153s (as they became) quickly proved themselves to be very flexible and versatile units able to run on lightly-loaded branch lines and also provide a capacity boost to other routes where needed as they are able to work in multiple with other members of the "Sprinter" DMU family.
They are in service with a number of Train Operating Companies including Arriva Trains Wales, Northern, East Midlands Trains and London Midlands.
