    Anyone know where I can find a stock list of ETL's fleet? I wasn't even aware that they had operational locos other than 87002/86101 but I saw a pic yesterday of an 86/7 in their own livery which I've genuinely never seen before.

    What work does the fleet do? Their website seems to suggest that they're always busy but yet the most recent examples are a few years old.

    They have 86701 and 86702 - I believe one is in their own livery, and the other in Colas' after the Euston delivery trials - neither of which has worked recently AFAIK.

    They also operate some of the ACLG's locos - 86101, 86401, 87002 - for GBRf, doing the ECS moves at the London end because the extra few metres of a 92 against the buffers would make the set too long for the platform! 87002 has worked a full London-Scotland round trip recently because of a shortage of 92s.

    One was seen recently on Willesden Depot. It was the Colas liveried one so I assume 86701.

    They are very underutilised I believe that 86701, (in Colas Livery) is currently on Ilford Depot, And 86702 (in ETL Livery) Is on Willesden.
