LSL’s ‘Blue Pull­man’

- Cotswold Rail

Two years ago, on read­ing that Lo­co­mo­tive Ser­vices Ltd was pur­chas­ing an HST set ( RAIL 859), I wrote to ex­press the wish that it might be con­verted into the form of an iconic Blue Pull­man from the 1960s.

I am de­lighted to see re­cent re­ports that, al­beit with­out the re­mod­elling of the Class 43 cab fronts, the set that will be used for lux­ury rail tours will in­deed fea­ture a close match to the orig­i­nal ex­te­rior Pull­man liv­ery.

I am sure that this will be a strik­ing, dis­tinc­tive and pop­u­lar train, and wish LSL ev­ery suc­cess in run­ning this on many routes.
