All Aboard the Preserved 125!

Flyer for the Great Central Railway Nottingham

It had to happen. A preserved High Speed Train running on a museum railway. The one survivor of the two power cars from the prototype HST, the other of which was sadly scrapped several years ago,

41001 was displayed at one point in the National Railway Museum in York, but has more recently been restored to working order using a Paxman Valenta engine taken from a production-series HST when the fleet was rebuilt with new engines.

The reversed blue and grey livery doesn’t quite match the Virgin Trains livery of the coaches, though.
