40106, 50008 Thunderer and 55009 Alycidon attended the October 2009 diesel gala at the Nene Valley Railway.

This was the first passenger duty for 50008 for over a decade and since an unsuccessful attempt for export to Peru by its then owners. Happily the export never took place and in 2006 it was sold to a private individual who funded its restoration at London & North Western Railway (LNWR), Crewe and more recently at the Nene Valley Railway.

The locomotives provided turns from Wansford to Peterborough and the return.

For more pictures of these particular locomotives see the In Preservation group.
