After around a year and a half without having seen an 87 in the West Midlands I was happy to hear that the 87 would be running some test runs to Birmingham International. Over Wednesday and Thursday I attempted to see 87006 on it's 2 daily test runs to Birmingham International. On Wednesday I had no sucess but did manage to see a few freights through Coventry. However on Thursday the sun came out and I managed to catch the 87 at Birmingham International. I would have taken some different angles of the train including the 82 at the rear but he left within about 10 mins of arriving so I didn't manage to. It certainly brought back memories when I heard that beautiful whine from the loco again!
