Hundreds take last HST from London Paddington

Post by David Benton » Sun Jun 02, 2019 3:24 am

Hundreds of people travelled between London Paddington and Exeter St Davids on the last scheduled InterCity 125 journey to the West country.

The sold-out trip was attended by hundreds of railway enthusiasts, including the train's designer, 89-year-old Sir Kenneth Grange.
