50008 Draycott 27 July 2019

Pictured just a few miles into its first railtour for over 27 years, 50008 Thunderer passes Draycott on 27 July 2019 with the Branch Line Society 1Z08 07:57 Derby to Carlisle 'The Return of Thunder Vac' railtour. 67002 is bringing up the rear. Despite the awful weather (which got considerably worse!), I wasn't going to miss Thunderer's return to passenger work on the mainline, especially as I had photographed its last tour in November 1991.
