Virgin Trains introduced these lightweight, long range, high speed DMUs as a replacement for old HST sets in 2001. The class 221 "Super Voyagers" feature active tilting through corners to increase speed and efficiency.

Similar locomotives

The Class 222 'Meridian' is essentially the same locomotive, built for another operator. With the decision to shelve the diesel version of the Intercity Express, the Voyager and Meridian will probably be the last high-speed diesel trains used in the UK.
