Class 43 ‘Inter-City 125’

Designed by Sir Kenneth Grange and built by BREL in Crewe from 1975 to 1982, the Inter-City 125 transformed the fortunes of British Rail.

A new concept in High Speed Diesel Trains whereby a streamlined locomotive would be attached to each end of a fixed rake of modern, air conditioned Mk3 coaches.

Powered by wonderful sounding Paxman Valenta engines they provided journey shrinking speeds of 125 mph and revolutionised passenger services out of London Paddington (1976) and London King’s Cross (1979).

Dubbed ‘The best trains ever built in Britain’ they started to be retired in 2019 after 43 years of amazing service to be replaced by Hitachi Class 800s.

Printed on 200gsm Tintoretto

Soft textured surface paper that has a natural white finish equivalent to a traditional water colour fine art paper, designed for high quality fine art and photographic reproduction.
