Hull Trains HST nearly there. - Posted: January 29, 2019 - 2:52 PM Quote and reply
A Reading to Hull HST ECS is on the move and due at Botanic Gardens at 1635. All Hull Trains running today apparently, half cancelled yesterday due to class 180 problems.

Hull Trains say:
Currently we have got four 180’s but we have recently just taken delivery of an HST (High Speed Train) which is our contingency train.
“This gives us a bit more robustness so if any of our 180’s let us down in the future we have got an HST we should be able to call upon. So we have now got five trains.”
Their new bi-mode trains may well be in service by the end of the year.
