Description

The British Rail Class 43 (HST) was designed by BR Derby and manufactured at BREL Crewe between 1975 and 1982. Many would say the HST reflects the pinnacle of diesel locomotive design, holding and retaining the world speed record for a diesel locomotive. In all 197 diesel power cars were manufactured to provide a high-speed passenger service in a time when public budgets were constrained and mass electrification of lines was not financially viable.

A testament to the success of the design is that 193 of the power cars are still in service today, with only three being scrapped due to accidental damage and one being preserved at the NRM. After privatisation of BR, the fleet has been distributed amongst various operators including East Coast, East Midlands Trains, Grand Central, Cross Country, First Great Western and Virgin Trains. The HST was originally built without buffers.

However, to allow it to act in conjunction with Class 89 and 91 electrically powered locomotives on the electrified East Coast line, eight power cars were fitted with buffers. Network Rail has also converted a HST as a measurement train. This is packed with measurement and safety equipment and is used on the West Coast line to ensure lines are fit for use and safe for high speed and tilting locomotives.
