YEAR INFORMATION
2008 An iconic train linked with an instantly recognised livery! Virgin Trains have been a force on the rail network for several years offering a dynamic service and using dynamic trains. The Virgin HSTs were once a common sight on the West Coast Main Line between 1996 and 2004, and for many these trains were the ideal synergy between two instantly recognized design icons.
2009 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.
2010 An iconic train linked with an instantly recognized livery! Virgin Trains have been a force on the rail network for several years offering a dynamic service and using dynamic trains.
