A very colorful train but I assume it is no more?

The Inter-City 125s are the UK's most successful diesel locos and most are still in service, having covered millions of miles. They also are a much smoother ride than the more modern Electric units that were supposed to replace them. I used to work for the company that ran the East Coast Main Line and, when travelling on my staff pass, always tried to pick a service that featured this type.

Many thanks, jf, for enjoying my trains.
