and 55022 Royal Scots Grey
attended the May 2017 diesel gala at the Severn Valley Railway
During the gala there was the opportunity for 50031 Hood
to haul a diagram using a set of Mark II coaching stock painted in British Rail InterCity livery, matching that of the locomotive itself. This gave an opportunity to see how Class 50-hauled services would have have appeared, had the class remained in service for a while longer.
The locomotives provided turns from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth and Kidderminster to Bewdley.
