With the Ruggex services doing the rounds between Coventry and Nuneaton, there was also 2 "Footex" services operating from Liverpool to Wembley Central in conjunction with the Carling Cup final game between Liverpool -vs- Manchester City at Wembley Central. 

The first service to run was 1Z68, the 10:05 Liverpool South Parkway - Wembley Central, this train was consisted with EWS-liveried 90035 leading with Royal Train 67005 Queen's Messenger on the rear, running approximately 4 minutes early, I photographed the train at Atherstone Westwood Road just as a Virgin Pendolino train was overtaking, originally I didn't think much of the shot but on the other hand I think it represents a good West Coast Mainline shot.

The second service was 1Z57 10:48 Liverpool Lime Street - Wembley Central, which was DRS Northern Belle set, Northern Belle-liveried 57312 Solway Princess was leading, with DRS-liveried 57310 Pride of Cumbria on the rear. I shot this train at Atherstone Station, with the classic station building forming the back drop. 

90035 Atherstone.90035 Atherstone.90035 passes through Atherstone working 1Z68 10:05 Liverpool South Parkway - Wembley Central foot-ex. An unidentified Virgin Pendolino runs alongside working 1A10 10:01 Preston - London Euston Virgin Trains service.
