DONCASTER RAILWAYS

Sky 1 HD at Doncaster station in 2014

Doncaster

Heritage Railways

 

Sky 1 made some TV programs on East Coast and Class 91125 and a Mk 4 set were given Sky 1 HD branding I think as part of the deal . The set was returned to East Coast colours in 2014, befor Virgin Trains East Coast took over in 2015.
