Improving the quality of Market Harborough's rail service
EMR were clearly not going to let the demise of the HSTs pass unnoticed. Not only had they repainted HST power-car 43102 in BR InterCity 'Swallow' livery (see post for 24/02/2021 below), on 14th April they revealed 43274 repainted very smartly in their deep purple house-style. Considering the design of the HST dates back to 1975, it carried the livery remarkably well. The pictures below show it at the head of the 16:29 from Market Harborough to Nottingham (15:34 from St Pancras) on 16th April 2021.
