86401 was stabled just inside the shed building. At this time the loco was in regular use and owned by EWS; little did we know that we would successfully purchase the loco three years later.

Star of the show, 86401, was located in the "garden" area in anticipation of its naming ceremony the following day. This view shows the Network SouthEast livery, superbly applied by LNWR at Crewe, and with paint donated by Williamsons of Ripon.

On 4th August 2015 86401 performed a solo main line test run from Willesden TMD to Watford Junction, Euston and back to Willesden. This was the loco's first main line run since purchase for preservation in 2004. The loco is seen here at Watford Junction.

86401 is seen at London Euston ready to work its first commercial train, 5M16 empty coaches from the Lowland Caledonian Sleeper, to Wembley Inter City Depot on the morning of 8th August 2015.
