87002 is the latest loco to receive a Porterbrook livery. The other side differs in that the word PORTERBROOK is very evident but we did not acheive a good picture of that side of the loco.

With what most would regard as its better side on view, 87002 departs a damp London Euston for Liverpool Lime Street on the 16th August 2004.

Class 87s have only rarely been seen on the East Coast Main Line but this is the second one to appear in less than a week! 87002 heads north through Alexandra Palace with a mail train that normally would use the West Coast route on the 18th April 2006. This train is likely to return to unit operation soon when repairs to traction motors on the 325s are complete.

Displaying the less favoured side of its unique livery, 87002 which was out and about on the 6th September 2004 is seen here heading north out of London at Carpenters Park.

We have not had a good opportunity to picture 87002 on a train since we first saw it displayed at Crewe in May 2003. This is also the first time we could picture the 'other side' ...you decide which one you prefer best! It took us pleasantly by surprise as we waited at South Kenton on the 29th January 2004.

87002 is about to depart from a rather damp Euston on the 30th October 2003. This the first time we have seen this loco since it was revealed in Porterbrook livery at the Crewe Open Weekend in May.
