Concept model, British Rail InterCity 250, approx 1/20 scale, consisting of Class 93 locomotive, No. 93001 and section of Mark V carriage, in perspex case, made for design company Seymour Powell by Keith Handy, 1514mm x 164mm x 335mm.

British Rail InterCity250 was a project to upgrade the West Coast Main Line, announced by British Rail in 1990. The project’s scope including upgrading rolling stock, sections of the track itself, and signalling infrastructure in order to bring the WCML in line with the East Coast Main Line which was now fully electrified and capable of accommodating high-speed rail services.

As part of the project, British Rail commissioned Seymour Powell to design concept models of the proposed British Rail Class 93s which were to run on the upgraded network. This model is one of the concept models built by Seymour Powell.

The Class 93s were intended to be a development of the Class 91 locomotives which were already running on the ECML, however the project was cancelled in 1992 and the new fleet was never built.
