125 -The Enduring Icon
Published Friday 15th June 2018.
Our book “125 -The Enduring Icon” is 100% HST and tells the story of the last forty-five years of the InterCity125 in a new and very factual way.
Using a largely photographic format, supplemented by detailed text sections and captions, the whole history is covered to ensure the fullest possible picture of the operational life of HSTs from inception up to the end of 2017.
Chapters cover the early days, the business impact on InterCity, developments through privatisation, extremities of operation, the engine developments and enhancements, and the preservation story of the prototype. Superb photographs illustrate the whole story, with significant detail of the evolving fleet.
Written and collated by 125 Group, and with a foreword by our Hon President, Sir Kenneth Grange, this 96 page softcover book promises to be the highlight publication of 2018 and is one that should be on every member’s shelf.
