East Coast officially unveiled its latest unique 'one-off' livery on Class 91/1 No. 91110 at the opening of Railfest 2012 on 2nd June.


Class 91 No. 91110, which holds the speed record for the class of 162mph, was chosen to be specially wrapped for the occasion and to receive the name 'Battle of Britain Memorial Flight'. The naming was undertaken by TV personality Carol Vorderman, in the presence of various RAF personal and several thousand visitors to Railfest. The livery, is built on the base East Coast colour scheme, with a black nose, Spitfire and Hurricane images and the RAF Memorial Flight logo. The nameplates follow the traditional Southern 'Battle of Britain' Pacific style and colour scheme.

Congratulations go to East Coast and the Memorial Flight for having the incentive to take such a bold step in such a spectacular way.
