Galleries: (choose from the list)

On the 30th October 2004, oneAnglia said farewell to their Class 86 locomotives with a railtour hauled by 86235 Crown Point and 86246 Royal Anglian Regiment. The tour ran from Liverpool Street to Cambridge and back, then out to Southend, Clacton, Harwich International and finally Norwich. The return non-stop run from Norwich to London behind 86235 broke the point-to-point speed record with a new time of 82min 12 seconds. We were able to set up our stand in the DBSO van area for the journey.
