History

The British Rail Class 43 (HST) is the TOPS classification used for the InterCity 125 High Speed Train (formerly classes 253 and 254) power cars, built by BREL from 1975 to 1982. The class is the fastest diesel locomotive in the world, with an absolute maximum speed of 148 mph (238 km/h), and a regular service speed of 125 mph (201 km/h). There are claims that this diesel rail speed record has been broken twice unofficially: by the TEP80 Russian train in 1993 achieving 271 km/h (168 mph), and the Talgo XXI Spanish train reporting 158 mph (254 km/h) in 2002.

Payment options: You can either pay in full now and receive your model first with the peace of mind that you only have to sit and wait, or pay a £20 non-refundable** deposit, and pay the rest (£210.99) a few weeks before the loco is due. Please ring if you need any assistance.

What is TTS Sound?

For several years Hornby have been at the forefront of adding the dimension of sound to the world of model railways by having locomotives equipped with sound decoders.Although extremely effective such an element of realism has understandably added cost to an already highly detailed model. With the cost concerns associated with such embellishments the Hornby engineers have developed a unique sound decoder that not only provides superior DCC control but also dedicated sounds associated with the locomotives that have been installed with this new sound decoder. Classified as being fitted with TTS (Twin Track Sound) these new type sound locomotives reap the benefit of the Hornby development resulting in an amazingly low retail cost for a fully DCC Sound locomotive. Each locomotive will have no less than 16 Sound functions specific to the chosen model, including whistle/horn, start up, idling, wheel slip if appropriate plus a host of other relevant sounds.

Other info:

  • This pack is DCC fitted with 2 x TTS sound chips (see above). The sound will only operate on a DCC model railway. On a standard, DC, analogue model railway, the locomotive will run but the sound will not operate.
  • The postage and packaging for this model will start from £3.95 for 24hour courier (auto-upgraded from Royal Mail). Mixed with other items it may be slightly higher, 

*Price match guarantee excludes other retailers stock clearance offers.

**In the event that you cancel. If we have to cancel due to stock limitations or any other reason beyond our control, the £20 will be refunded via the payment method you paid with.
