Well, kind of:
https://www.statesmanrail.com/journey/the-midland-pullmanStatesman Rail has confirmed that the latest charter train venture from Locomotive Services Limited will begin with an inaugural journey later this year.
Rumours have circulated for sometime that the LSL-owned HST set would appear in a somewhat different livery. It has now been confirmed that both powercars and all nine trailer vehicles are to be outshopped in a modified 'Blue Pullman' livery, close to that of the original trains. Like the original sets, the HST powercar will not carry a yellow front end, thanks to modified highlights.
The train is being painted and assembled at Eastleigh Works by Arlington Fleet Services...
An interesting venture!To celebrate the 60th anniversary of this iconic train we are honoured to present our own refurbished high speed train as a faithful revival offering tours in 2021 throughout Britain.
