This is one of the two prototype High speed train power cars of built in 1972 which were given class 41 as there classification which was for just the power cars. The HST set with the mark threes was later re-classified as a Diesel-electric multiple unit as class 252.
Just the two prototype power cars were built numbered and 41001 and 41002. After the Class 252 re-classification these were then renumbered as 43000 and 43001. 41001 is now part of the National Collection and is owned by the NRM at York. The other prototype power car number 41002 was scrapped at CF Booth.
The HSTs built for the Great Western Main line and East Coast main are still in service and still doing a great job

I am not sure which power car this is, but it was at the Shildon end of the train. It does not look very clean and looks like it had an oil leak. Note that these prototype HSTs had buffers which the number is behind. The number is not clear at the rear of the power car.
