87's had one last reprieve with Virgin in 2006 with the Pendolino fleet undergoing modification one diagram which had ominously remained timed at 110MPH went over to Class 87 haulage. With the real possibility that a large proportion of the 87 fleet will soon be off to pastures new I took a trip to Birmingham International on 13th December 2006 to catch 87002 on the 1G21 16:51 Euston - Birmingham New Street. The service is seen here at 18:22 some ten minutes or so later than booked due to some problems further down the line.
