Let’s Go Round Again, Again?

You can’t get enough of a good thing, right?

Well, we have one last chance to see the stunning retro liveried HST, used on the recent LNER #HSTFarewell tour, as it heads for storage at Ely Papworth Sidings.

Rumours are floating around as to the future use of the set, and we would be very surprised if it is sat in store for very long, but rumours are just that, rumours. Until we have anything official, then we are going to have to treat this as the ‘last chance’ to see this stunning set on the ECML.

After performing its final booked working, a staff charter off of Edinburgh on Saturday 28th December, the set has been passed over to Rail Operations Group for the move south from Craigentinny.

New Years Eve, the 31st December 2019 is the date for your diary, 43006 & 43112 will work 5L46 Craigentinny T&RSMD to Ely Papworth Sidings, passing a number of our cameras en route,
