gone-90009-87006-jp.jpg (142908 bytes)

Both of these locos will soon not be seen at London Euston as the Pendolinos take over. However it is the class 90s...in this case 90009...and not the 87s represented here by 87006 that will be the first to go. Virgin has decided to stick to the 87s when loco hauled is required leaving the 15 class 90s to move over to 'ONE' Anglia services. This picture of the two side by side was taken at Euston on the 8th April 2004.
