50008 Burrs 7 March 2010

50008, resplendent in its freshly applied 'Laira Blue' livery passes Burrs in superb late afternoon light with the 2J87 15:45 Heywood to Rawtenstall service, during the East Lancashire Railway's Diesel Gala on 7 March 2010. The return to traffic of the erstwhile Thunderer in this 1991 DCWA engineers pool livery was certainly the highlight of this event. 40145 East Lancashire Railway can be seen hitching a ride on the rear of the train.
