High Speed Trains

Class 43’s – Fleet List and Photo’s

Better known as 125’s or HST’s (High Speed Trains) the Class 43’s are one of the oldest diesel powered engines still running on our lines.

Living in the west country I mainly see the FGW (First Great Western) version of these engines.

This is a list of the Class 43’s that were reported in the 2011 Rail guide and photo’s of the engines I have seen on my travels.
