The 125 Group has announced that Prototype Power Car, 41001, will be returning to its owners, the National Railway Museum, in November.
November is the end of its current operating agreement. Despite best efforts, the 125 Group and The Science Museum Group have been unable to reach a new agreement.
The Science Museum Group has chosen to terminate the loan.
41001 has been on a huge journey in the 8 years since 125 Group took over custodianship. It has gone from a static exhibit to a fully working locomotive.
It has regularly hauled public passenger trains at its home railway Great Central Railway (Nottingham).
The 125 Group was formed 25 years ago, they now own, maintain and operate a small fleet of Mk3 coaches and hope to acquire at least one Production Power Car in the near future.
