Nuneaton and Rugby 2003
Another trip down memory lane from a visit to Nuneaton and Rugby when I was on my work travels in July 2003. A lot of Virgin red and also some unusual electric loco liveries.
A northbound Virgin express in the hands of 87007 at Nuneaton.
Followed by another Virgin northbound with 87004
Class 87 hauled Inter City trains appeared to be the norm so it was unusual to see a southbound Pendolino.
A 3 car class 170 in the then current Midland Mainline livery heading towards Leicester.
Track maintenance equipment
A London bound Virgin express with DVT 82129 in the lead.
A throwback to the early days of the WCML electrification with 86233/E3172 in original blue on a southbound express.
Two more views of 86233/E3172.
On to Rugby now and we see 47829 in Police livery with a Virgin “Thunderbird”.
87002 in Portebrook colours heading north.
EWS 66124 at rest.
Railfreight 92022 heading south about to pass 66124.
Finally, another Virgin northbound with 87024.
