87028 is now operated by GBRf which as can be seen from the branding on the front is now owned by First. The Loco was one of two class 87s given a trial by DRS last year and retains their blue livery. Pictured at Willesden on the 21st January 2006.

The Norwich bound special with 87019 in charge speeds through Ingatestone on the 24th September 2005 on what we believe is the first passenger train operated by the class on the Great Eastern Main Line....unless someone knows different!

ax-87006-kcross-jp.jpg (161226 bytes)

Now this really is a RARE sight...a class 87 at London's King's Cross! This could quite possibly be the very first passenger departure by this class of loco from this station...only operating until recently out of nearby Euston. Not only that but 87006 is an interesting loco to appear on this train as it was one of the class given a trial by DRS and still retains that livery without the logos. The date of the picture is Easter Friday the 14th April 2006.

87006 in DRS colours but now operated by GBRf waits on Platform 1 at London's Kings Cross with Hertfordshire Rail Tours Easter Scottish Rail Excursion. The loco which will shortly depart for Edinburgh will make a very unusual sight indeed on the ECML especially with the Blue Pullman set and additional MK 1 coach in tow. Keeping the 87 company and completing the scene on April 14th 2006 are two GNER class 91s.

bl-87022-mail-jp.jpg (148652 bytes)

Here is one of the class 87s given a trial by DRS hence the livery although orange has since been added around the windows as it is now operated by First owned GBRf. 87022 belts north through Bushey on the WCML on the 20th April 2006.

history-me-87028-jp.jpg (118477 bytes)

HISTORY. Well it seems that all remaining class 87s...with the exception of 87001 at the NRM and two non-operational ones...are off to BULGARIA in the new year. Already out there are 87012 and 87019 making this famous WCML class history over here. This GBRf operated example 87028 'Lord President' is seen making a rare appearence at Stratford E.London, on the 15th November 2007 on a route learner to Southend Victoria of all places!

1s-87006-Pendo-jp.jpg (144436 bytes)

Who would have thought we would see this again! It is not quite what it appears as 87006 is shortly to depart on a 'driver refresher' run and not a service train as a result of a short term requirement for loco and stock hauled diagrams between Euston and Wolverhampton whilst modifications are made to the Pendolino fleet. Pictured at London Euston on June 2nd 2006.
