50017 & 47703 Bredicot 24 June 2000

Surely the strangest livery ever to adorn a Class 50. 50017 passes Bredicot on 24 June 2000 in the company of 47703 with a northbound VSOE 'Northern Belle'. Very Art Deco, with gold banding and numbers. Although totally unauthentic, it looked quite good when clean, as here. However, it's use on the mainline in this condition was short lived.
