The InterCity 125 (originally Inter-City 125) or High-Speed Train (HST) is a diesel-powered high-speed passenger train built by British Rail Engineering Limited between 1975 and 1982. A total of 95 sets were produced, each comprising two Class 43 power cars, with one at each end, and a rake of seven or eight Mark 3 coaches. The name is derived from its top operational speed of 125 mph.

 

The Package

Our starter package includes theory and practical driving of the NVR HST. The experience lasts for one and a half hours in total. During their time on the footplate, 2 participants will take it in turns to drive the HST for a total distance of approximately 10 miles. Participants are also provided with a drink on arrival and a few souvenirs of their participation. Please note that, although only one power car will be powering the set, the train will be driven from both power cars. 

Please note that our experiences are only suitable for those aged 18 years and above.
