Built EE Vulcan Foundry in March 1966, rebuilt BREL Crewe in 1972, 1 of 3 equipped with GEC traction motors and Flexicoil suspension as a testbed for the later Class 87 locos. This gave them a continuous rating of 5000hp, making them the most powerful of the Class 86s.

Here 86103 makes its station stop, heading 1V18 13.43 Glasgow - Paddington; it has an earlier, offset version of the sealed beam headlight.

The loco was named without ceremony at Willesden TMD on 27 January 1981, commemorating Andre Chapelon (1892 - 1978) the French locomotive engineer and co-designer of the Kylchap chimney for steam locomotives.

Withdrawn in July 2002, it was scrapped later that same year at Easco, Immingham
