HORNBY R4857 VIRGIN TRAINS, MK3 FIRST OPEN (FO), 11097 - ERA 9 - 00 GAUGE

Hornby R4857

Virgin Trains, Mk3 First Open (FO), 11097 - Era 9

00 Gauge

On the Holyhead services, the Super Voyagers were found to be too short and so Mark III sets were pressed into use as a stop-gap measure, hauled by Class 47 and Class 90 locomotives until September 2005. On the WCML, modifications to the Pendolinos in 2006 led to a Mark III set being introduced on Birmingham New Street services, hauled by a Class 87, while following the Greyrigg accident on February 23, 2007, another Mark III set was pushed into service on the WCML, being hauled by a Class 90 and tailed with a DVT.
