The Inter-City 125
The reason I love the railways and why I work on the railways.
The stop gap that saved British Rail and set the benchmark for all other trains since.
I remember when they were launched and all the marketing that came with these iconic trains. My first trip was back in 1980 from King’s Cross to York and oh my did I love every second.
My grandparents would take my sister and I up to the Highlands of Scotland aboard the 1200 Highland Chieftain from King’s Cross during the later half of the 80s.
I’ve loved them ever since and it’s always a joy to see one and travel on one.
So it has been an absolute pleasure to draw these Class 43 power cars over the last year.
The idea behind these artworks is to show a power car that has spent its whole time working its route and all the liveries it has worn during its time in service.
43010 for the Great Western Mainline.
43105 for the East Coast Mainline
43044 for the Midland Mainline
43101 for Cross Country
But for the Midland Mainline artwork I’ve added 43274 which was the one and only power car painted in the EMR purple livery.
