On the Move - GNER Train

Just back from a train trip to London to see the Quilt show at the V & A and Mrs Delaney's Exhibition at Sir John Soanes. You see the link?

There are several train engines on the Transport panel and this is the GNER representative. Great North Eastern Railway was a train company owned by Sea Containers Ltd which operated high speed express trains on the Eastern coast main line rail from 1996 to 2007. The dark blue with red trimming was a reference to the GER livery, the pre-nationalisation company who ran the service.

This is possibly a Class 91 but if anyone knows more?

  1. Sometimes husbands have their uses.... I am reliably informed that it is indeed a Class 91 InterCity 125, with pantograph connection to the power lines.
