HST : East Midlands Trains Revised

In 1987, 8 Eastern Region Class 43s were fitted with buffers in order to couple to 91s, which were in testing prior to the completion of the Mk4 sets. After the 91s had finished with the HST sets, the 8 43s remianed with buffers intact. Throughout their history they have worked for a number of operators - firstly GNER. 2 of these 43s went to Network Rail, and the remaining 6 locos to the newly founded Grand Central. In late 2017, the HST lease Grand Central had ended, and due to major disruption cause by the Thameslink programme, EMT took these 6 units on. Now resplendent in a revised East Midlands Trains livery, they work 2 diagrams during weekdays only.

This pack features 43 423 (with Valenta & 40 Years plates), 465, 467 (with Nottingham Police & Fire Rescue plates, and polished buffers with buffer grease), 468, 480 and 484 - all with dynamic script that applies the correct features to each number. A reskin of the Mk3 TF, TRFB and TS are included with correct numbering in order to form sets DY21, 22 and 23.

1 scenario is included for the MML mainline route.

Please note: For a reason I can't figure out, within the scenario editor the Driver version of the Class 43 only highlights and selects when you attempt to do it through the buffers, or where the nameplate sits. Apologies.
