EMT HST Summer Special to Skegness

Happy days! Just done something, I’ve been wanting to do for a good number of years! That is getting the Summer Special HST train to Skegness! Big thanks to Mark T for sorting it all out and of course joining me!

Looking forward to Highland Chieftain

 Class 43 at Grantham railway stationSo looking forward to last ever trip on a HST on the ECML. Getting the train from Grantham up to York (which I believe, will be a InterCity 225), then boarding the Highland Chieftain service, which will be operated by diesel-powered InterCity 125 High Speed Train for the very last time! Going all the way up to Inverness.

This will be my third time using the Highland Chieftain service. Really, really looking forward to it!

Once up in Inverness, hoping to do the Far North Line, for the very first time!

Loving getting trains from Stirling railway station

Do really, love getting trains from Stirling railway station! Great place to see InterCity 125s and the new Class 385 trains.
