57302 at Saltley Viaduct
Wolverhampton - Euston trains were diverted via Nuneaton on Sunday 8th June 2008, and they also ran via Bescot rather than the Stour Valley. As in 2007 the loco-hauled set made an appearance on 1G09, the 11:56 Euston - Wolverhampton, with 90020 provided as the train engine. In 2007 it usually returned south on 1B22, the 16:12 from Wolverhampton, but on this day B22 was a Pendo. Instead the Mk3s formed 1B23 17:12 Wolverhampton - Euston, with 57302 providing the power as far as Nuneaton. It's seen here passing Saltley Viaduct at 17:52.
