Prototype HST is running on GCRN on Sun 24th & Mon 25th May. Details and booking info
Indeed, 41001 will run 4 services on the Sunday (10.00; 12.00; 14.00 and 16.00 - the first one is by special ticket only) and three on the Monday (10.00; 12.00 and 14.00). Each is scheduled to be in top/tail mode with resident Class 56 no 56097, with coaches from both the Ruddington air-braked Mark II rake and the 125 Group's newly acquired Mark IIIs.
On Board, there will be a 125 Group sales stand, bottles of the special "Miller's Pride" ale brewed for us by the Shiny Brewing Company of Derby, and light snacks and cold drinks available from the buffet counter. First Class accommodation will be available for a small supplement payable on the train.
Also active on each day will be the Vacuum braked set operated by 8F No 8274, and the other site facilities at Ruddington should all be open and available.
Do come along and see what has been achieved with the NRM's former static exhibit - and hear the famous Paxman Valenta engine in action once more.
Fantastic, though I won't be able to come down. How many coaches will be between the 41 and the 56?
Maybe we'll see you on another occasion alexl92 - would expect there to be 3 x Mark IIIs and 2 x Mark IIs - but subject to availability and change as circumstances require.
It's certainly an aim of mine to visit sometime fairly soon! Thanks!
Will it do 100mph+... I want to see some speed out of the unit.
Is it mainlined?
Not on a preserved line. 25mph.
What livery are the MK3s in? BR Blue/Grey or Prototype HST grey/blue?
One in former 'ONE' blue, that was then given National Express (East Anglia) signage, the rest in Virgin as withdrawn from West Coast livery from the pictures I have seen.
