UK Commuter traction

In the time I have been in the UK, I have travelled mostly with Southwest Trains, and as such photographed quite a few commuter trains in and around the area where I stayed. Later trips were made with First Great Western, and now with London Midlands. The sheer variety of what is available does make for interesting photography, but I suspect trying for one example of everything would be almost impossible. A favourite? possibly the Siemens Desiro series. They are quick, comfortable and give a smooth ride. Although, I am always open to other possibilities.
