Although approaching its quarter century in service on the WCML, 85019 still handles freight and passenger duties alike; here heading an up Freightliner past Rugby on the up goods line. The Class 85 fleet was allocated to Crewe Electric TMD at this time.

Built by BREL Doncaster in December 1962, it saw service until December 1989 when it was withdrawn, then cut up in November 1990 at Vic Berry, Leicester.
