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:
- 2019 Mileage competition entry:
Favourite British trains...
The InterCity 125 AND the InterCity 225
Looking forward to the...
Class 397 - quite a looker!
I also rather like...
My favourite electric loco class is the...
Followed by the...
As well as the...
My favourite British DMU class is..
The Class 158 (excluding refurbished Haymarket units which are just awful ).
I do like an un-refurbed 156 now you mention it, something about that rev-up
And I like Meridians in original MM colours
I’ve rather gone off...
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 )
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 - they are practically the same
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's Azuma liveries are growing on me.
My favourite foreign train is...
The Italian FS ETR 500
My favourite foreign countries are...
My favourite European cities are...
My favourite colours are...
Yellow, Blue and Gold
I particularly dislike...
Weak or just generally rubbish coffee
Earl Grey tea
The smell of bleach/chlorine
I especially like...
Sticky Toffee Pudding (who doesn't, eh? )
Pears (probably my favourite fruit)
Peach juice (I don't know why but it's so good )
Spaghetti àlla Carbonara
My personal areas of interest in railways include...
Current events (basically just what's going on)
Timetables (present and historic)
Speeds (bit of speed freak )
Other hobbies and interests...
Politics (getting right heavy at the minute though, too heavy )
Rangers FC (when they win )
Thank you for stopping by
