Apart Mk3 coaches and the Mk1 RKB buffet available as a kit, what can we put behind an HST prototype which could be available as RTR models in N gauge ?

The thing is that I love classes 41 and 43 locomotives. But I'm really not fond of Mk3 coaches.
Thanks.

One option is simply to run a pair back-to-back. This happened from time to time during testing.





or just a brake van for the guard? Hard to tell but looks like an ex-lms flavoured one.



Another idea is hauling test APT vehicles but that is not really an RTR option.





Alternatively, we will have to look at what the preserved power is/will be running with. So far it looks like mostly Mk3 stock although there are a few interesting alternatives.





Well, that's just not good enough. Some fount of all knowledge you are!  :no:  ;)

I wonder if it will have sound, if so i'm getting ear plugs. 

I saw her at the Haymarket sidings in Edinburgh in the early 70's and she screamed the place down - ten times louder than the current HST units.

Definitely a memorable day. :claphappy:

What on earth were they throwing bags of spanners at in the intro minutes ?

And nice to see the VW emissions test being passed @ 3:28  :P

I hope Dapol can also release this in the departmental "more yellow" version - a frequent sight all over the network in the late 70s and 80s.

@Sprintex

you know all about project miller matey, surely even for a preserved engine it couldn't be allowed to chuff down the line too many times sprewing that amount of clag out?  Or were they burning in the new cylinder linings ? :D

Judging by the omnipresent smokey fug floating around under the roof at Paddington until relatively recently, I always assumes HSTs were coal-fired. Was a bit bemused when I was there last year to be able to sit outside the cafe on Platform one without being asphyxiated.

Engine hadn't been run in quite a while, and this was its first proper test run with load. As with most diesels you get oil build-up in the exhaust which has to burn off too :thumbsup:

The power car shown will do for these early runs but the scrapped power car 43001 got altered roof cantrail grills production type?

Looks like it might just have been partial replacement, presumably for lost or damaged originals.
