Class Information: The Blue Pullman unit train concept was conceived as part of the 1955 Modernisation Plan in order to compete with road and air travel then taking hold of the country by providing luxury Pullman accommodation on high traffic routes on Midland and Western Regions of British Railways. Ultimately, the Pullman sets were not deemed an over-all success and services were prematurely withdrawn long before the equipment costs were amortized. However, many of the lessons learned paved the future of passenger rail travel in Britain through the success of the experimental Class 252 High Speed Train units being tested during the later period of Pullman operations.
