The team at East Midlands Trains’ Neville Hill depot have this week been celebrating a successful 30 years since one of the HST power cars was named in their honour.
‘Neville Hill’, otherwise known as power car 43049, was officially named on 21 January 1984 at the Leeds-based depot. 30 years on, the same power car is still in operation on the main line route to London with its original name plates still in tact, and it continues to be maintained at Neville Hill depot.
Five of the members of staff who were at the original train naming in 1984 helped other employees at the depot to celebrate the significant milestone. Paul Corrie and Allan Gant, both Quality Inspectors, along with Brendon Conlon, HST Cleaning Manager, Dave Tinnion, Engine Supplier MAN Technician and Steve Gorman from Northern Rail, who are all still based at Neville Hill, helped to recreate the proud moment when the train was officially named.
Linda Wain, HST Fleet and Depot Manager for East Midlands Trains, said: “This is a great achievement for the team at Neville Hill. The last 30 years have seen so many changes and improvements to rail services and they should be proud that ‘Neville Hill’ continues to play such a significant role in the delivery of today’s railway.”
