Prototype 89001 at Leyland.
The unique prototype Class 89, 89001, approaches Leyland on the Down Fast Line with a test train on the 28th September 1987. Besides a Derby RTC Test Coach 10, the rest of the train consisted of the BREL 'International Stock'. 89001 had been built at Crewe in 1986 as a potential contender for a fleet to be constructed for the then forthcoming East Coast Main Line Electrification Project. In the event the BREL Class 91s were chosen as the production series locomotives, and the stylish 89 remained a one off.
