Product Description

A rare original dashboard clock from an early example of the cab of a British Rail Class 43 (HST), better known as the InterCity 125.

The clock is mechanical and has a circular black face, with white Arabic numbers and yellow hands. The hands have luminous painted ovals. There is the British Rail logo. The clock is mounted on a rectangular steel plate and would be situated next to the driver’s phone and to the right of the speedometer. It appeared only on early models and was later changed to a digital version, around 1980. The clock is numbered 8467 and it was removed from locomotive 43012. The clock is in good working order and comes with its key. We believe this example is the only one on the market.

The British Rail Class 43 (HST) is the TOPS classification used for the InterCity 125 High Speed Train (formerly classes 253 and 254) power cars, built by British Rail Engineering Limited from 1975 to 1982. The class is officially the fastest diesel locomotive in the world, with an absolute maximum speed of 148 mph (238 km/h), and a regular service speed of 125 mph (201 km/h).
