English: The front end of Virgin's Class 57/3 Thunderbird locomotives, photographed when it was at the head of a line with two of its classmates in a siding at Crewe railway station is 57313 Tracy Island. I presume the green stuff on the buffers is some sort of lubricating and/or rust prevention grease.

The locomotives' use in rescuing failed trains gave rise to the Thunderbird name and associated naming scheme in reference to the classic 1960s Thunderbirds TV series.

In addition to the traditional hook-and-chain, these locomotives are fitted with Dellner couplings that fold down to allow them to connect to Class 220/221 Voyager DMUs and Class 390 Pendolino EMUs in case of failure or, in the latter's case, diversion via non-electrified lines.
