Swanage Diesel Gala Focus, 12th May 2018: 50049

50049 Defiance was the last Class 50, completed at English Electric, Vulcan Foundry in November 1968. Withdrawn in August 1991, then purchased for preservation by The Class 50 Society in December 1991, later merging with The Fifty Fund - it has now spent more time in preservation than in BR usage.

On Saturday 12th, 50049 was allocated to the Wareham shuttle working T+T with D6515 / 33012.

Awaiting departure at Norden.
