Bristol St Philips Marsh depot opens its doors on May 2 to celebrate 40 years of the High Speed Train (HST).
On display will be a number of steam and diesel locomotives, with the highlight being the unveiling of a special livery celebrating 40 years of the HST. As well as examples of Great Western Railway’s (GWR) fleet, members of HST fleets from across the UK will also be on display.
Depot Manager Simon Cassidy said: “I am delighted to be able to open our doors to the public and let them see first-hand how we work to maintain the High Speed Train – and to celebrate the workhorse of the GWR fleet as it turns 40; and prior to the arrival of Super Express Trains next years.”
Tickets are available through dedicated website www.GWR.com/SPMOpenDay. All proceeds will be going to the Springboard Charity which St Philips Marsh has supported for many years.
