Still in original Class 86/2 condition and wearing rail blue livery, 86239 heads past 1A28 09.56 Wolverhampton - Euston.

Built in June 1965 at EE Vulcan Foundry, the loco served for 31 years before being withdrawn as an EWS loco from the Res pool, following damage in the Stafford crash. It was scrapped in situ at Crewe TMD in April 1997.

The loco was named "L S Lowry" on 06 Oct 1980 at Willesden MPD without ceremony and was named for Lawrence Stephen Lowry (1887 - 1976) the famous matchstick men artist from Manchester.
