Virgin 87011 arrives at Crewe.
Under a threatning sky, 87011 -'City of Wolverhampton' arrives at Crewe with the 11.30 London Euston to Glasgow on April 5th 2003. This was almost the end for loco-hauled Anglo-Scottish services over the West Coast Main Line. It now seems like a golden age when virtually every long-distance service was loco-hauled. Withdrawn following the introduction of the Virgin Pendolino fleet, 87011 was stored at Long Marston but was scrapped at EMR Kingsbury in 2011.
