Era 11 (2016 to 2022) Current Era
Running with the Platinum Jubilee HST units, this coach reimagines what the ageing Mk3 coaches may have looked like in this celebratory Platinum Jubilee year under the old LNER. Full trains of these could have been used to commemorate such an occasion had nationalisation simply not happened. In a Platinum Jubilee silver with blue trim livery with re-purposed destination boards, the six First Class and two First Class Restaurant sliding door Mk3 coaches would indeed make a never to be forgotten image while being pulled along the East Coast Main Line at high speed. The sleek lines combined with more than a salute to the art deco style of the 1937 ‘Coronation’ train, plus the wonderful opulence and style such a service offered, brings fanciful imaginings into reality, if only in model form. This coach is numbered ER0072, in celebration of the Queen’s 20th year on the throne.
