Become a 125 Group member

If you enjoy travelling on the HST, photographing them or listening to the Valenta sound of 41001 in action, then welcome home. The 125 Group would like to invite you to join us – the ONLY group totally dedicated to the InterCity 125 High Speed Trains.

Members receive a quarterly magazine  ‘One Two Five’ which contains in depth news about the HST, articles about the history of the HST and technical insights, photos, preservation updates on 41001 & our MK3 fleet as well as member exclusives! A copy can be viewed and downloaded here 125 Group Sample Members Magazine (PDF) or by clicking on the magazine cover.


To join us:

We have a range of Monthly Direct Debit Payment Plans starting from £5.00 which help contribute regularly towards long term HST preservation. Direct Debit donators are entitled to register as 125 Group members for the duration of their payment plan.

Alternatively, for just £17.00 per year you can take out an Annual Subscription by completing this form.

If preferred you can download and print the membership form and post it to us, or request the membership form is sent to you. Please email us for a printed copy of the membership form.

If you live outside of the UK our membership rates are £20.00 for Europe and £23.00 for the rest of the world reflecting the higher cost of sending the magazines overseas and can be selected on the on-line membership form.

Members are allocated membership numbers in the 43xxx range, but for an additional one-off payment of just £1.00, you can select your own membership number within the range 43002 – 198. If you wish to select a personalised number, please insert your choice/choices on the membership form. Please note, most original power car membership numbers have already been taken – if none of your chosen numbers are available we will attempt to allocate a number close to your choice.

Any membership enquiries can be sent by email to: join@125group.org.uk


Renewing your membership:
