Episode 2

The Intercity 125 is the work horse of Britain’s railways but it was never meant to be more than a stop- gap.  Now, 42 years after the 125’s launch, its slowly being phased out.

This episode celebrates Britain’s first high speed train and reveals how a canny marketing campaign persuaded the great British public to come back to the railways.

Chef Prue Leith explains how banishing the soggy sarnie from British Rail was key to revitalizing the railways' fortunes and Peter Purves and Michael Cole look back on the disastrous launch of the 125’s rival- the tilting train
