85101 Winwick 12 March 1990

85101 passes Winwick on 12 March 1990 with the 6S50 13:11 Dee Marsh to Mossend steel empties. This was the first of ten Class 85s (a quarter of the total build) that was converted for freight use in 1989. This entailed removing the ETH equipment and reducing the maximum permitted speed. The locos were renumbered on the 85/1 series, 85101 being formerly 85006. This loco is the only survivor of the class, with all the other locos meeting their end at MC Metals, Glasgow.
