Hornby R1230M GWR High Speed Train Set
In August 1976, rail passengers travelling British Rail’s Western Region experienced a new way to travel to the West Country, with the introduction of the High Speed Train. By the end of the year, passengers could travel at 125mph between London Paddington and Reading and the new High Speed Trains, in their eye catching InterCity livery, were providing levels of comfort and service not seen since the golden years of the Great Western Railway. Forty years on, and with the West Country routes once more under the control of the Great Western Railway, these record breaking High Speed Trains received a new GWR Green fleet livery and are set to run High Speed services to the West Country for the foreseeable future.
