50007 Hercules and 50049 Defiance at different stages during The Cumbrian Hoovers tour run by Pathfinder Tours.

The tour started at Birmingham International and headed north going over the famous Settle-Carlisle line. For their return journey the locomotives took an unusual route around the Cumbrian Coast, believed to be a first ever for the class, before joining the West Coast Mainline at Carnforth. They then retraced their route back to Birmingham International, a total of 474 miles for the one-day trip.
