To mark the 40th anniversary of the introduction into passenger service of the High Speed Train, Great Western Railway commissioned a special cast manufactured plaque, which was fitted to 43002 and displayed at the St. Philips Marsh depot open day on May 2nd 2016. Plaques are now being fitted to one HST power car of all other Train Operating Companies.
Now you can also own a part of HST history by purchasing one of these cast plaques! They are metal replicas, but identical to those fitted to the power cars, measuring 30cm by 26cm. Unmounted the price is £240 or mounted on a high quality wooden display board the plaque is priced at £330. These plaques are a LIMITED EDITION and will ONLY be made against confirmed orders, each one being supplied with a certificate of authenticity. They are certain to become very collectible.
