It is seen on the approach to Acocks Green in south Birmingham, having just made a scheduled stop at Tyseley. It later returned via the North Warwickshire line. Class 47 No. 47773 is on the rear and was used for a reversal at Hatton. This was the first of three Shakespeare Express services this year to start away from Birmingham.
