D400 Rail Plate 5 January 1992

50050 was repainted into its original BR blue livery and given its original D400 number during early 1991 in order to mark the rundown of the class on BR. The loco lost its Fearless nameplate and instead gained this small Commemorative plaque on the bodyside. While scanning this slide and trying to accurately line up the image I realised that the lettering is not in the least level! Note also the English Electric Leasings plate, recalling the fact that initially the locos were not in fact owned by BR. Photographed at Yeovil Junction on 5 January 1992.
