EDITORS COMMENTS
This print from the STEAM Museum of the GWR takes us back to the 1980s, a time when British Rail used this iconic HST Intercity 125 design for their Christmas card. The image beautifully captures the essence of this powerful locomotive as it approaches with sheer elegance and determination. The HST Intercity 125, known for its speed and reliability, was a symbol of progress during that era. Its sleek silhouette dominates the frame, showcasing its streamlined design against a backdrop that seems to stretch into infinity. The perspective adds depth and dynamism to the composition, making it feel as if we are standing right in front of this magnificent machine. As we gaze at this photograph, we can almost hear the roar of its diesel engine and feel the rush of wind as it races towards us. It evokes a sense of excitement and adventure - perhaps even nostalgia for those who experienced train travel during that time. Beyond being an impressive piece of engineering, this particular image holds sentimental value as it was chosen by British Rail for their Christmas card design. It serves as a reminder that even amidst technological advancements, there is still room for tradition and celebration. In preserving moments like these through photographs such as this one, museums like STEAM allow us to relive history and appreciate how far we have come in terms of transportation technology while cherishing our past achievements.
