GBRf livery for Class 50s

 

GB Railfreight and the Class 50 Alliance have announced that main line registered Class 50s 50007 Hercules and 50049 Defiance are to be repainted into the latest GBRf livery.

The repaints will be carried out by Arlington Fleet Services at Eastleigh. GBRf will fund the work and also manage the movement of the locos to and from Eastleigh.

The first outing for the GBRf-liveried Class 50s will be on Saturday March 23 when they will work Pathfinder Tours’ Teminator-Pheonixed railtour from London Paddington to Penzance and return to Waterloo.  This train will mark 25 years since the final BR operated Class 50 railtour over the same route, The Terminator, which was also promoted by Pathfinder.

More details will appear in the March issue.
