86237 takes the up fast heading 1O28 07.49 Liverpool - Dover Western Docks inter regional service; this loco will be replaced at Willesden by a diesel which will run via Kensington Olympia, Bromley and Chatham to reach its destination.

Introduced in Jan 1966, this loco saw service on the WCML and Anglia before being withdrawn in June 2004 and scrapped later that year at Sims Metals, Cardiff.

The loco was named "Sir Charles Halle" (1819-1895) on 29 Nov 1983 at Manchester Piccadilly, to mark 125th anniversary of founding the Halle Orchestra in Manchester.
