“Hi Al… well got my computer back so up and running again, weather up here has been atrocious… just nothing but rain rain and more rain… so an ideal time to go up in to the loft and run a few trains.
I have featured more on my HST Inter City 125, as last week was a sad farewell to the HST`s running on East Midlands Railway, after 45 years of service.
These Icons of Brith Rail more or less are now all retired. Still the odd versions running, think mainly in Scotland.
These were the mainstay that pulled BR out of the problems they were having with old rolling stock and unreliable Loco`s… and with a speed record for diesels of just over 145 MPH.
Hope this video gives you and members something to watch besides the rain we are experencing, with the gardens taking a back seat these days
A big thanks to Hall of Fame memberDave.
I know Dave has shared lots of videos on the blog, so it’s really nice to have some pics to look at and see the details which you perhaps miss with a video.
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here if you want to get going on your own layout.
