Varsity Line's radical rolling stock solution

This from Poppy the Station Cat...

Good to see that the promoters of East West Rail have embraced the Age of Austerity!

Clearly aware of the challenges faced by today's industry those backing the restoration of the old Varsity Line are planning to use cascaded rolling stock, judging by this video.

Fast forward to 3:01 and at 3:24 for a glorious slo-mo of an articulated bogie!

How marvellous to see this splendid British built train finally make it into revenue earning service.

But is Crewe Heritage Centre aware that they may lose their star exhibit?
