86213's cab was opened up for visits and proved very popular.

The other locomotives were lined up behind 86213: 85101, 84001 and E3035 (83012) provide interesting livery contrasts.

There was a covering of snow by the end of the week - 86213, 85101, E3035 (83012) and 73119 sit in this wintry scene.

Not many preservation venues can offer this sort of electric line up: from left to right are E3044 (84009), 86213, 85101, E3035 (83012) and 27000.

This view of E3003 (81002) and 86213 through the side wall of the shed was short-lived, as cladding was applied shortly after the gala.

Following a fire on the locomotive that was booked to haul 86213, 87001 and 87002 to Crewe, the move looked to be in doubt. Virgin Trains came to the rescue and provided 57308 to haul the three north. Here 57308 is coupled to the rake ready for departure.

Meanwhile, on Friday evening, exhibits continued to arrive; 57308 brought 86213, 87001 and 87002 from Wembley. The locos were parked in the reception sidings overnight and shunted into position on Saturday morning.

Early on Saturday, before the public were allowed on site, 86213 was moved via the traverser into position ahead of the rest of the ACLG fleet.
