The Life & Times of Locomotive 86259


Welcome to my website which features my Class-86 25kV/AC Electric Locomotive 86259.

STOP PRESS - 86 259 will be back on the rails with a Steam Dreams/NRM tour on 24th June. 86 259 will lead from Kings Cross to York, where Flying Scotsman will take over, and take the train to Edinburgh for 3 days in Scotland. 86 259 will return to Rugby, light-engine, on Thursday afternoon.

Take a look at the future trips page for other planned trips, including 2 trips with Tornado and Flying Scotsman.

The loco is offering words of encouragement to all who pass through Rugby station - see the images in Gallery 1 in the Images section.

Have a browse around and drop back from time to time as I hope to keep the site reasonably up-to-date with details of trips both completed and yet to happen.

Please feel free to drop me an email with your thoughts and suggestions (see the "Contact Me" page or alternatively use the "Make Comments" page in 'Misc').
