HST Nameplate Display
After over 40 years in service GWR's fleet of the iconic HST trains are no longer operating intercity services from London Paddington having been replaced with a fleet of 93 new Intercity Express Trains.
Over the years of service they have carried names of people and organisations from the cities, towns and communties they serve.
Steam - Museum of the Great Western Railway is delighted to be hosting a unique exhibition of nameplates which have been carried by Great Western Railway's iconic high-speed trains. The HST Nameplate Display will launch on Thursday, 18 July, and will be available to view for 6 months.
For one month only, new Castle Class nameplates will also be on display at STEAM. The new Castles will be a special train set consisting of 4 coaches, mainly operating in the West of England. Each set will have its own vivid red nameplate.
