The One:One Collection has announced that Ex-LNER Class 43 HST Power cars, 43006 (43206) and 43112 (43312) and their respective coaches have joined their collection.
However, they won’t be moved to the Margate museum yet, instead, they’ll team up with the Midland Pullman-liveried HST to haul trains between London St Pancras and Manchester Piccadilly as well as other UK destinations.
Their first outings have been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, but updates on their planned routes will be announced later in the year.
Most recently, the HST was in service with Virgin Trains East Coast and later became part of the London North Eastern Railway fleet.
This set was used on LNER’s ‘Lets Go Round Again’ railtour to bid farewell to HSTs on the East Coast Main Line.
