        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 trains...
    The InterCity 225 and the InterCity 125
    [I know, I know...I in the end I realised I couldn't chose between them ;)]

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

    My favourite electric loco classes are...
    Class 91
    Class 87
    Class 90
    Class 89

    My favourite TOPS 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 :()

    Goodbye 314 212

    I love...
    e300 Class 373 TMST Eurostars, best TGV-type train ever.

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

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

    I also like...
    SNCB/NMBS AM96s, quite decent 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.

    I also have a soft spot for...
    Thumpers, they sound sooo good

    And also all those Irish GMs...
    121, 141, 181, 071 and even the 201s. The thrash off a Baby or Big GM is something to behold! :lol:

    My favourite TOC is...
    Probably Virgin Trains these days, historically GNER or Eurostar.

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

    For modern liveries...
    Current NIR one is quite classy, Blue and Silver
    Newer TPEx
    ScotRail 7 Cities

    My favourite foreign train is...
    The Italian FS ETR 500 (swish and stylish!).

    I was not impressed by...
    The TGV Thalys (very poor ride)
    Class 365 (somewhat shabby inside)
    The famous Swiss railway timekeeping, every train I took was two minutes late, just like clockwork! ;)

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

    My favourite UK cities are...
    Glasgow
    Edinburgh
    York
    Oxford

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

    I am...
    Scottish (Glaswegian and Highlander), English (East Sussex),
    Irish (Dubliner)
    and British

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

    I particularly dislike...
    Mushrooms
    Beetroot
    Mushy vegetables
    Tough, muscly or super fatty meat
    Particulary greasy food
    Weak coffee or just generally rubbish coffee
    Artichokes
    Earl Grey tea
    Rancid milk/cream (the smell is real! <()
    Smoking/e-Cig fumes

    I especially like...
    Chocolate
    Coffee
    Smoked Salmon
    Sticky Toffee Pudding (who doesn't, eh? ;))
    Pears
    Peach juice (I don't know why but it's so good 8-))

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

    Other hobbies and interests...

    History (mainly British and European)
    Politics (UK, Scottish, US, Canadian, Irish, French, UK Overseas territories/Crown Dependencies)
    Travel (Foreign or at home and particularly by rail)
    Art (just in general)
    Drawing
    Literature (a fairly wide variety)
    Film (again, quite a large variety)
    Phonetics (accents and pronunciation)
    Languages
    Architecture (I have a particular love of Art Deco)
    Cuisine (cooking, food...)
    Coffee (drinking and making :lol:)
    Deep discussions (about almost anything really)
