The class 43 HST units were designed by BR and developed between 1975 and 1982.
These units were used all over the country and, due to their sleek design and ability to reach high speeds in short distances, they were instantly a favourite for railway operators. They were ideal for non electrified route, which were common in the 1970s and 1980s.
There are still over 150 of these units in service and some have been converted to New Measurement Trains (NMT), also known as the Flying Bananas, by Network Rail.
This set contains a four car HST complete with a head and tail unit and two coaches. This GWR Set features:
- Two celebrity power cars used by GWR in the HSTs final days, 43002 - the first production HST re-shopped in its immaculate original BR Blue and Yellow colour scheme and 43185 "Great Western" in the beloved BR Intercity Swallow livery
- Two GWR liveried green Mark 3 coaches
