90012 Soulbury 14 January 1989

A reminder of how smart the Class 90s looked when first introduced, at least when clean! 90012 had been in traffic for less than two months when this picture was taken. It is pictured passing Soulbury on 14 January 1989 with the 09:40 Liverpool Lime Street to Euston InterCity service. Note the smoking chimneys of Bletchley Brickworks in the background. They would not be smoking for much longer, as the site closed the following year.
