YEAR INFORMATION
2008 In 1986 British Rail introduced the dramatically different Executive livery onto their high speed InterCity services bringing a totally fresh look to the whole of the High Speed Train fleet and service. During the early days of this livery it was quite common to see the trains made up of coaches in both the new Executive livery and the older BR Blue.
2009 In 1986 British Rail introduced the dramatically different Executive livery onto their high speed InterCity services bringing a totally fresh look to the whole of the High Speed Train fleet and service. During the early days of this livery it was quite common to see the trains made up of coaches in both the new Executive livery and the older BR Blue.
2010 The powerful Hornby Class 43 HST drive and dummy units are a superb match for the Hornby Mk3 coaches. Each drive and dummy unit benefits from the latest in design and production techniques with detail features both inside and outside of the model being reproduced to the finest degree. The power in the drive unit is supplied by a centrally mounted five pole skew wound motor which is connected to both bogies for maximum tractive effort. Both units have lights which illuminate in the direction of travel when used with analogue control, however when used with a digital unit these lights can be operated independently.
2011 Suitable rolling stock: R4462, R4463, R4464
