50007 Crownthorpe 5 April 2014

The highlight of the Mid Norfolk Railway's spring Diesel Gala over the weekend of 4-6 April 2014, was the return to traffic of 50007, freshly repainted into original BR blue, and with reinstated Hercules nameplates. Looking superb (no, hang on, that's 50002!), 50007 Hercules passes Crownthorpe on 5 April 2014 with the 1W09 12:39 Dereham to Wymondham Abbey service, with 31108 on the rear. Unfortunately the day's earlier sunshine had disappeared, although a little bit of brightness was just breaking through the clouds.
