50008 Long Marston 18 September 2018

50008 Thunderer arrived at Long Marston on 18 September 2018 in weak sunshine, and departed 40 minutes later in miserably dull conditions, but predictably between the two there was a short period of brilliant sunshine. Therefore I couldn't resist taking this picture of the loco bathed in sunshine as it waits at the still closed gates, after arriving as the 0Z68 06:39 from Leicester. This picture gives a good overall view of the Long Marston site, showing the huge variety of stock that is stored there.
