Class 50s at Peak Rail, 4th October 2015

At Rowsley South on the morning of 4th October.
Renown Repulse Preservation Group

50030 Repulse which was withdrawn in April 1992 with main generator damage. Purchased by Operation Collingwood and kept at the Pontypool and Blaenavon Railway until the move to Peak Rail in October 2002 after acquisition by Renown Repulse Group in July 2002. 

50029 Renown which I best recall in the down west facing bay at Salisbury. This locomotive last worked in January 1992, and was withdrawn in March that year,following power unit damage. History in preservation has been similar to that of Repulse
Cab of 50037 Illustrious which was transferred south from Bo'ness.
