87009 Watford Gap 17 March 1989

87009 City of Birmingham gives the motorists on the M1 a run for their money as it heads south near Watford Gap with the 11:54 Lancaster to Euston service on 17 March 1989. The motorway services sign refers to Watford Gap and Leicester Forest East, although obviously the mention of Blue Boar and Trusthouse Forte certainly dates the picture!
