Built December 1965 at EE Vulcan Foundry; here 86235 calls with 1V87 06.00 Aberdeen - Bristol.

There are hints of the future BR large logo livery in the special livery given to this loco and 86214 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Rainhill Trials in 1979. The loco was named "Novelty" at Liverpool Lime Street on 04 June 1979 by Philippa Gooding, BBC presenter to commemorate the loco which took part in the original Rainhil trials in 1829.

Withdrawn in September 2008 from the Anglia fleet, this loco was sold on to Europhoenix for export to Europe, but I believe is still stored at Long Marston.
