Mainline Fleet on Class 1 Duties
Posted on 28th August 2015 03:40
Tuesday 25th August 2015 marked an AC Preservation landmark with both 86101 and 87002 operating Class 1 passenger services. 86101 worked the 1M11 Glasgow-Euston Sleeper whilst 87002 worked the 1S26 service in the opposite direction. Meanwhile 86401 operated ECS services (5S96) between Wembley and Euston.
86401 returns to the mainline
Posted on 6th August 2015 01:27
On 4th August 2015 86401 was taken on a test run from Willesden Depot to Watford and return. This journey marks a return to service for ‘401 and is the first time in 11 years that she has run under her own power in the mainline network. 86401 will shortly join 86101 and 87002 working Caledonian Sleeper ECS services.
86101 has recently stretched her legs working services on various duties in Scotland and 1M11 Glasgow Central-London Euston sleeper on 5th/6th August.
Due to a defect that will be repaired shortly 87002 is currently restricted to ECS services between Wembley and Euston.

82008 is the subject of some investigational work to assess the condition of its rectifier and the tap changer drive. Additionally some work has been undertaken on the auxiliary electrical systems with a view to running some of the cooling fans.
