5080 Greet 13 October 1990

Castle Class 4-6-0 5080 Defiant drifts past Greet on the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway with the 14:00 Toddington to Gretton service on 13 October 1990. 5080 was built in 1939, emerging from Swindon Works with the name Ogmore Castle. It was renamed Defiant in 1941 in honour of the WW2 Boulton Paul Defiant fighter aircraft. Luckily the Castle class was far more successful than the Defiant, which was hopelessly underpowered and vulnerable to Luftwaffe attack.
