The Class 50 Alliance Ltd
, in association with the Severn Valley Railway
, run driver experience courses using one of their locomotives on a number of days each year.
The second course in the 2016 calendar, for which the author was a delegate, ran using locomotive 50049 Defiance
hauling a consist of seven carriages from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth and the return.
Completion of this course marked a milestone for the author since it meant that I had finally managed to drive all four of the locomotives operated by The Class 50 Alliance Ltd
