ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
High Speed Train (HST) sound recordings from 1980 to 2018, both Valenta and re-engined.

Some early tracks are digitally processed mono archive recordings (added pseudo-stereo effect). The remainder are in stereo.

Lineside and station recordings of the record-breaking Intercity 125s, many from in and around Leicester and Peterborough, plus Stoke Bank. Other locations include Coventry and the Lickey Incline. Also, more recent sounds of the prototype 41001 on-train, recorded at the GCR (N).

Some nostalgic interlopers into these recordings include classes 08, 20, 31 and even a stationary APT-P.
