2007 Class 89 Appeal Supporter's Day

Galleries: (choose from the list)

On 30th June 2007 a special unveiling of 89001 in its original InterCity Executive livery was organised for the benefit of contributors to the Class 89 Appeal, who raised the money to purchase the loco.

The day before the event, 89001 was shunted into position. Here it descends into the yard at Barrow Hill, propelled by a 20.

Awaiting visitors at Barrow Hill on the day before (and before the heavens opened!).

The weather on the day, combined with previous flooding in the area, conspired to reduce visitor numbers somewhat, but those that attended enjoyed the day. 89001 on display.

Some of the restoration team break open the bubbly to celebrate the loco's preservation and repaint with guests.
