The "Royal Scot Golden Jubillee 1927-1977" special charter train of 2 May 1977 pauses at Preston headed by immaculate class 87 87003. The traction inspector wearing his traditional bowler hat receives quick instruction on how to use a dignitary's camera. The locomotive was named 'Patriot' during the following year and was exported to Bulgaria in December 2008, supposedly surplus to requirements. ©Gordon Edgar Collection/Rail Photoprints
