The British Rail Class 153 Super Sprinters are single-coach railcars converted from two-coach Class 155 diesel multiple units in the early 1990s. The class was intended for service on rural branch lines where passenger numbers do not justify longer trains, or to boost the capacity on trains with high passenger volume. In 2019/2020, five former GWR 153s moved from Northern to Abellio ScotRail for use on the West Highland Line attached to Class 156s. The first refurbished carriage was unveiled in late 2020. The trains have also been refurbished inside providing free wifi, Plug and USB sockets and maps of the West Highland Line on the tables. The carriage also has ScotRail's Highland Explorer offer where a £10 upgrade is paid to sit in it. Due to a local agreement with driver union ASLEF, ScotRail's 153s can only be driven from the A cab and not the B cab due to the rather cramped space in the B Cab which would be unsuitable for driving long distances. The 153s operate between Glasgow and Oban on the West Highland line.
