87033 Old Linslade 14 January 1989

87033 Thane of Fife speeds past Old Linslade on 14 January 1989 with the 1A33 10:30 Manchester Piccadilly to Euston service. At this time InterCity locos were being painted into this version of the InterCity / Mainline livery, and initially they received very small numbers, making it very difficult to identify an individual loco on the move, certainly when traveling at 100 mph as here! Luckily the nameplate is easily readable on the original Kodachrome slide. The tiny number is barely visible near the driver's door at the wrong end of the loco!
