Class 92 92001 Victor Hugo at Crewe Works Open Day on 31st May 2003. I think that this was the only class 92 ever painted in EWS livery.

I was there on that day but in 2003 I only took steam photos!!!
I seem to remember getting a burnt head in the unusual sun!

92031 was the only other locomotive to carry this livery.
These are dual-voltage electric locomotives which can run on 25 kV AC from overhead wires or 750 V DC from a third rail. They were designed specifically to operate services through the Channel Tunnel between Britain and France.
By the way, I think "Chunnel" is a horrible word and (as a professional technical author and translator) I am pleased that it is not in widespread use any longer!

Your right. I totally forgot about 92031. I have a photograph of it on railtour duty at Crewe. Not good enough to post though as it was all a bit on the 'hurry up' as it left the platform.
