51950 & 52062 Hailes 20 March 1993

The highlight of the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway's 1993 Spring Diesel Gala was the return to traffic of their Class 108 unit, 51950 & 52062. In immaculate condition fresh from a repaint into original 1960s green livery complete with speed whiskers and white cab roof, it passes Hailes with the 11:45 Toddington to Gretton service on 20 March 1993. Note the traditional techniques employed here for lineside vegetation clearance, with the cutting side showing evidence of recent controlled burning.
