Prototype HST Power Car for Spring Diesel Festival!

Subject to final agreement from the National Railway Museum, we are hoping to have Prototype HST Power Car 41001 star at our Spring Diesel Festival and Mixed Traction Day.

Unique No. 41001 is planned to work public services between Kidderminster and Bridgnorth, hauling five of the 125 Group’s Mk3 coaches, recreating the look of the Prototype High Speed Train.

The air-braked Mk3 vehicles planned to attend are First Open 11074, Standard  12087, 12092 and recently restored  12134, plus catering car 10206 which will be serving delicious hot and cold drinks and snacks from Buffet 125.

The Prototype HST was built in 1972 and during testing between York and Darlington in 1973 smashed the UK rail and world diesel speed record reaching  143.2mph. It was the fore-runner to the hugely successful InterCity 125 Production HST fleet which revolutionised long distance UK rail travel. No. 41001 is part of the National Collection, restoration was funded and carried out by 125 Group under the ‘Project Miller’ banner after the power car had spent over 25 years as a static exhibit at York NRM. The power car is fitted with a ‘screaming’ Paxman Valenta engine of the type which originally powered all HSTs.
