45007 & 45106 Nuneaton Abbey Junction 3 October 1987

45007 Taliesin & 45106 Vulcan round the curve from Abbey Junction at Nuneaton and traverse the normally freight only link to Midland Junction, which crosses over the West Coast Mainline, avoiding Nuneaton station. The train is the Pathfinder Tours Bristol Temple Meads to Scarborough '45 Finale' railtour on 3 October 1987. Despite the wreath by the headboard, the train's title was a little premature, as the class survived into the following year. Both locos were cut up during 1992, but 45106 enjoyed a brief moment of celebrity status after it was painted green and designated as a railtour locomotive to mark the end of the class. Unfortunately the gloomy weather persisted for the following day's Class 50 railtour.
