The shortest lived livery on the class 90s?

Shortest lived livery on the 90? @44690, technically, yes, as they are now debranded, but still in bumblebee and if you think of the case of 90021, still in Barbie EWS First Scotrail long time after last running on the Cally Sleeper and likely to return to Intermodal workings before being repainted into DBC then it stands to reason that this may not necessarily be the end for the striking black and orange 90s just yet.

Not sure if this has been mentioned (can't find anything on search) but a few weeks ago the restoration of 89001 reached a major milestone as the pan was raised at Soho depot and it moved (a couple of inches!) under its own power for the first time since it was withdrawn

 

 

I'm impressed but not at all surprised.  Tim was involved in the original build of 89001 and what Paul has forgotten about the workings of electric locomotives, amounts to more than most of us will ever know.

Well done chaps.

Stafford was one of the coldest stations I remember, That brutalist 60s architecture was not warm and traveling via Coventry recently [seeing the City of Coventry nameplate] it's not changed much. I used to change traveling from Macc to university at Bristol. I recall the last sight of one of the 84's on a freight there in 1981.

It still is... cold... lol...

 

But it's still a great place to catch a train or two.

Agree - 2 x 90s on freight look great!

Found a couple of pics for this thread, both taken at Manchester Piccadilly on 4 June 1968:

 

E3029

E3154

That would have been a great time to photograp Piccadilly with the 1500v DC Woodhead line terminus to the left of this, with the boxy looking 76s with their double pantos alongside the comparatively sleeker 86s - hard to believe Woodhead wasnt converted to 25kv at a time when electrification was, as it still is, the way forward for the railways
