Virgin West Coast, loco-hauled through Willesden
Virgin West Coast, loco-hauled through Willesden
This photo represents a changeover period between December 2002 when the first Pendolino (tilting train set) entered service on this line, and December 2006 (the last scheduled loco-hauled services). Class 87 electric locos like this had been hauling express services out of Euston since their introduction in the mid-1970s.

Compare the view with TQ2182 : Willesden Junction - APT over 20 years earlier with the prototype tilting train.
