Six Class 50's lined up at Old Oak Common at the 2017 Open Day
IIRC they broke the southbound record several years ago. There was a DVD of the attempt that came with Railway Magazine.
I also read somewhere...
Missed the record by 21 seconds apparently.
DMU's came in a few categories.

Do we really need thread after thread about sales? Can we just have a new thread when there is actually a sale?
Very much a one-off, but D1013 Western Ranger did reach Leeds on a service from Swansea in January 1977. It wouldn't have taken the NTP route however.

I'm reminded of a Jimmy Carr joke
"I grew up in Slough in the 1970s. If you want to know what Slough was like in the 1970s, go there now."
Class 465s are all 4 car. The 2 car version is Class 466.
