        225s are legendary and amazing and all round brilliant

        Well I like the look and of Meridians, and I do quite like Pendolinos to be fair ;)

        Not tried an IET yet so can't pass judgement on those but I'll grant you they do look quite modern :)

    Hi, I'm Hexagon789 and welcome to my profile page. The following is a compilation of some of my favourite types of train, other interests and some stuff about me:

    Favourite British train...
    The InterCity 225 :wub:

    A close second...
    The InterCity 125

    Once introduced...
    Class 397 - quite a looker! 8-)

    I also rather like...
    Class 47s
    Class 55s
    Class 37s
    Class 50s
    Class 68s

    My favourite electric loco class is the...
    Class 91

    Followed by the...
    Class 87

    As well as the...
    Class 90

    I also like the...
    IÉ 201 Class

    In addition to the...
    IÉ 071 Class

    My favourite British DMU class is..
    The Class 158 (excluding refurbished Haymarket units which are just awful <().

    Yes, alright 170s aren't too bad either and I do like an un-refurbed 156 now you mention it, something about that rev-up 8-)

    My favourite EMU class has to be...
    Class 314s (why not? ;), especially as those veritable, veterans of Weegieland enter into their twilight months. May you rest in peace dear, old friends :()

    I love...
    e300 Class 373 TMST Eurostars, best TGV-type high-speed train ever, smooth as silk. LNER should get some back! ;)

    I also love...
    Class 390 Pendolinos (the accceleration and tilt are impressive, it must be said :))

    I particulary dislike...
    FGW Class 166s, probably 165s too at that

    I also like...
    Belgian SNCB/NMBS AM96s, quite decent medium-distance InterCity EMUs really

    I'm not so keen on...
    XC 220s, not a bad train as such but they could've made the interior so much better.

    My favourite TOC is...
    Probably Virgin Trains, though I'm getting progressively keener on LNER. Historically - definitely GNER.

    My all-time favourite livery is...
    InterCity Swallow, but I also like Virgin's older Red/Black livery.

    For modern liveries...
    Current NIR one is nice, a stylish blend of Blue and Silver
    Newer TPEx is pretty stylish too
    ScotRail 7 Cities, suits the HSTs pretty well
    Actually, the new Virgin Voyager and LNER Azuma liveries are growing on me.

    My favourite foreign train is...
    The Italian FS ETR 500

    My favourite foreign countries are...
    Switzerland
    France
    Belgium
    Italy
    Spain

    My favourite European cities are...
    Paris
    Barcelona
    Brussels
    Venice
    Florence
    Rome
    Geneva

    My favourite colours are...
    Yellow, Blue and Gold

    I particularly dislike...
    Mushrooms
    Beetroot
    Weak or just generally rubbish coffee
    Earl Grey tea
    Smoking/e-Cig fumes
    The smell of bleach/chlorine

    I especially like...
    Chocolate
    Coffee
    Smoked Salmon
    Sticky Toffee Pudding (who doesn't, eh? ;))
    Pears (probably my favourite fruit)
    Peach juice (I don't know why but it's so good 8-))
    Moules marinière
    Hot chocolate
    Spaghetti àlla Carbonara
    Sourdough bread

    My personal areas of interest in railways include...
    History
    Technology
    Current events (basically just what's going on)
    Modus operandi
    Rolling stock
    Signalling
    Timetables (present and historic)
    Speeds (bit of speed freak ;))

    Other hobbies and interests...

    History
    Politics (getting right heavy at the minute though, too heavy :rolleyes:)
    Travel :)
    Art
    Drawing
    Literature
    Film
    Languages
    Architecture
    Coffee
    Deep discussions
    Cars
