GB Railfreight Class 50s, 50007 (as 50014) and 50049 returned to the mainline yesterday, Saturday 23rd March 2019, following their transformation into GBRf livery.
Following the transformation, 50007 (50014) and 50049 were booked to haul the 50 Terminator – Phoenixed from London Paddington to Penzance, promoted by Pathfinder Tours.
Thanks to Charlie Greasley, we have been able to share with you these incredible images.
Firstly, based at Ealing Broadway, we see GBRf BR Large Logo liveried Class 66 No.66789 pass through the station with the ECS movement for the tour from Eastleigh Arlington to London Paddington. The movement passed through the station 23 minutes late due to a delay at Hanwell Loop.
Next through Ealing Broadway was the two 50s, on their way to London Paddington to meet the tour, 50007 (50014) and 50049 passed through Ealing Broadway 23 minutes late.
Finally, the tour, the two 50s are now seen speeding their way from London Paddington through Ealing Broadway towards Penzance, looking superb in their new livery. The duo passed through just 8 minutes late on their way to the West Coast.
