Description

This is a Hornby R3656 Class 87 Bo-Bo Locomotive No. 87019 Sir Winston Churchill in Virgin Trains Livery. The Class 87 locomotive was designed to provide a more powerful mixed traffic electrical locomotive for British Rail to cope with the route gradients of the West Coast Main Line between Weaver Junction and Glasgow. They first entered service in 1973 when British Railways reversed its locomotive naming policy in 1977, the class were given the generic title of 'Royal Scot' and named from a selection of famous steam hauled predecessors.

The fleet was not fitted with On Train Monitoring and Recording (OTMR) and so they could not operate beyond January 1, 2008 and were finally withdrawn from service. No.87019 Sir Winston Churchill was built at Crewe and first entered traffic in March 1974, being allocated to Willesden depot. It was named as Sir Winston Churchill in May 1978, however, the name was removed when the locomotive was repainted into an L&NWR lined black livery during March 2005 and renamed as ACoRP Association of Community Rail, which it carried until July 2006 when the locomotive was finally withdrawn from service.
