Running days in June 2022

Did you miss the chance to ride on our HST during our first operational weekend in April or maybe you just want another chance to ride because you enjoyed it so much? We’re pleased to announce that our friends at Midland Railway – Butterley have invited us to operate again over the weekend of Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th June – so that is what we intend to do!

Our operations over this weekend will be primarily using First Class Coaches and our record breaking power cars 43159 (the World’s fastest diesel) and 43048 (the first to operate in preservation at 125mph). Timetable & ticket information for the weekend can be found here.

While on board, come and check out Buffet 125 serving refreshments and snacks throughout the day and enjoy your trip in first class comfort as we operate the Railway’s Yellow timetable of six services each day. Shop 125 will also be open with a wide selection from badges to books, DVDs to postcards for you to purchase.

Other site attractions will be available should you break your journey. Why not take the chance to view 43089 at Swanwick Junction and maybe take a ride on the Golden Valley Light Railway?

Please come along and support our operation, meet the team and enjoy our early preservation operations along the beautiful Midland Railway.

125 Group would like to take this opportunity to say how very grateful we are to Midland Railway – Butterley for their continued support in both storing and using our lovely HST.
