How come?


I thought they finished next Friday?

Apologies for the late reply. Believe it was because of a reduced timetable over the Bank Holiday weekend, so no need for them.

43102 heads the 1B23 Leeds to London away from Langley Mill yesterday morning ... the purple 43274 was at the back ...



I couldn’t resist one last MML journey aboard a HST! So this morning I caught 1B23 to Leicester. The same set as yesterday, with 43102 rolling into Langley Mill ...



With 43274 leading from Nottingham on its way to London, about to depart Leicester ...

Well, after seeing the 'celebrity' EMR set on its first day following 43102 being repainted, it was only fitting I headed to Derby last night to see the final HST timetabled passenger service from London arrive and depart. In front of a large gallery, 43102 'The Journey Shrinker' arrived working the 1F70 2002 St Pancras to Leeds East Midlands Railway service, with purple 43274 tailing. A nice touch was the headboard to mark the occasion. End of an era...

And a video...the number of people present meant some shots were spoiled unfortunately, with people getting too close to the edge despite security's best efforts...

Two from either end of Newcastle in 1985.


43082 on the South bound Talisman, 30th March 1985.



43094 on the 15:05 to Dundee, 20th June 1985.



In that first shot note the hoardings around the new Travel Centre still being built...


It wouldn't last as long as the HST!!

I think it’s owned by the 125 Group?


It is, and will be on it's way to Ruddington at some point. It's move to Butterly allows the group to access and work on it (whereas access was limited at Chaddesden).
