LNER is to put several former HST powercar nameplates into auction in aid of charity partner, the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM).
The nameplates concerned are those from Nos. 43308 Highland Chieftain, 43300 Craigentinny and one Crest, 43238 National Railway Museum, 43208 Lincolnshire Echo, 43257 Bounds Green, 43274 Spirit of Sunderland, and 43290 MTU Fascination of Power.
The memorabilia will be auctioned on the 14th November by G.W. Railwayana Auctions, and can be previewed on the auctioneers website.
David Horne, Managing Director of LNER, said: “LNER has a proud history and has had some truly famous trains serve our customers over the years. Names such as the Highland Chieftain and Spirit of Sunderland are synonymous with the railway and have helped celebrate the regions along the East Coast route.”
Money raised from the auction will go towards funds LNER has raised to support CALM, already totalling more than £200,000. The charity works to prevent suicide, the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK and the cause of 18 deaths a day.
