Better Than New

50026, "Class 50"50026_20140510_1450026 Indomitable at Swanage Railway, Swanage

50026 Indomitable made a magnificent sight at the recent diesel gala at the Swanage Railway.

My waning interest in railways back in the mid-1980s meant that I missed the era when many Class 50s ran in Network SouthEast livery. I did not expect to like it much but the moment I saw this locomotive I had to admit that it looked (and sounded) absolutely fabulous. I certainly don't recall ex-works British Rail locomotives looking so good - indeed almost better than new.
