91108 at Prestonpans91108 at PrestonpansAfter 30 years of service and 7.5 million miles on the clock, 91108 heads south through Prestonpans with 1S23 16.30 Edinburgh Waverley - London Kings Cross service on it's final day in service before withdrawal. 22.7.19 On 22nd July, LNER's 91108 made it's final journeys as part of the LNER 91 fleet. 91108 was to go off lease and due an exam, reckoned to cost somewhere in the region of £50,000 and with the 91's due for replacement by the new Azuma fleet, the decision was taken to withdraw the loco to provide spare parts for the remainder of the fleet. Unfortunately this will likely also lead to the eventual scrapping of 91108.
