Saturday 7th May 2016 saw the first journey to the South West of 43002 in it’s new vinyl wrap. To celebrate 40 years of the HST on Britains railways the power car has been transported back in time with this colour scheme of the intercity 125 service. It has also been renamed in honour of it’s designer, Sir Kenneth Grange.

Pictures and videos are from Nick Campbell and our own cams.
