HST Power Car W43025 at Bristol Temple Meads.8 zobrazeníHST power car W43025 brings up the rear of service bound for London Paddington at Bristol Temple Meads on the 25th October 1980. Still carrying its original well designed livery, blending the Mark 3 trailers with the power car, W43025 was only four years old when this image was recorded. 31 years later the power car is still earning its keep for First Great Western plying the routes from London Paddington - one can only guess what mileage this machine must have accumulated since its introduction in 1976.
