Class 43 East Coast

The second region to introduce HST’s, the Eastern Region’s sets have seen the most turmoil in their lives, starting off by replacing the mighty Deltics, being largely replaced by the Class 91 electrics, seeing a revival in numbers after the withdrawal of Cross Country sets, and saw their operators change three times in the space of three years.
