So succesful is the design thar it was an HST that broke the world speed record for diesel traction in 1973 when the train reached a speed of 143 mph (230 km/h) between Northallerton and Thirsk, in Yorkshire.
The set comprises of a power car and dummy power car which both have headlights that illuminate in the direction of travel and three coaches one of which is a buffet car. A Hornby TrakMat is also included.
