To be pedantic (sorry ), the HST is classed as Locomotives and Coaches, Class 43s being the locomotives with the mk3s as unpowered trailing cars.Technically a HST is a DMU as HST is a name of a train, not the name of a Rail Vehicle.
OK, for all of those who don't use http://www.wnxx.com on a regular basis (And thus can't see the photo.) try this:could you explain that for dummies please as i am having the same problem that you had.
Can't agree with that, most "true" DMUs were built as power car plus trailer coaches.To be pedantic (sorry )
For the HST to be a true DMU, the power cars and coaches would have to be powered.
Not wanting to get into an argument over whether HSTs are locos or units, I thought I'd give a bit of a background. Going back over the years, it seems BR was never quite sure what to class them as. Originally, the prototype was built as 2 locos (Class 41 - 41001/2) and coaches. Someone somewhere must have thought this wasn't right, as it was later decided to reclassify it as a DEMU, so it became set 252001 and the motor vehicles were renumbered into the coaching stock series as 43000/1, the trailers also being renumbered too.A HST isnt a loco or a unit...its just a HST!
