Galleries: (choose from the list)

On 27th April 2005 the group was honoured to have its name applied to 87002 for its last few months in traffic with Virgin Trains. The loco returned to service following an exam late on 4th May, with its first full day in traffic on the 5th. Here are a selection of shots taken during the loco's preparation and from its first day back in traffic.
