In superb Autumn light DRS class 88 no. 88005 Minerva crosses Docker Viaduct on 15 October 2021 with the 06.23 Daventry - Mossend Tesco Express container service. This was the only member of the class in service using electric power on this day as DRS and other freight operators of electric traction seek to manage costs in light of huge increases in electricity prices. Other workings usually class 88 operated were in the hands of pairs of class 66 and class 68.
