On this day in history-Friday October 24th 2014

 

Loco hauled no more, 90034 worked the Mk III set on Friday October 24th on 1G40 1903 Euston - Brum and 1B94 2050 return. This ends all Virgin loco hauled activity, although many will claim this ended with the last R90/G21/B05 on 221206 which of course featured class 87 traction.
