Class 50



Considering that the class 50s were (and still are) my favourite class I have suprisingly few photographs of them. In addition to being my favourites, the 50s were the only class that I managed to see all members of. For a while they were regular visitors to Cardiff on trains from the South, and my regular trips to Brunel's magnificent station in Bristol always turned up a few.
