Built April 1966 by EE Vulcan Foundry; here 86246 departs heading an up train of 18 Parcels bogie ecs. Withdrawn in September 2008, this loco was sold to Europhoenix for export to Hungary, but I believe still sits at Long Marston.

86246 takes the up fast heading 1A29 09.15 Manchester Picc - Euston, now only 60mins from its destination.

The loco was named "Royal Anglian Regiment" on 13 May 1985 at London Liverpool Street station by HM Queen Mother. This both celebrated the launch of electric working between London and East Anglia, and the tercentenary of the regiment.
