50025 Duffryn 15 August 1987

I have very few pictures of Class 50s in South Wales, and even fewer of locos in Network SouthEast livery. Therefore that makes this picture even more special. 50025 Invincible passes Duffryn on 15 August 1987 with the 2V58 10:12 Bristol Temple Meads to Cardiff Central. With just five coaches this is obviously a ridiculously easy load for a Class 50. The loco's full diagram for the day would have been: 5C16 04:05 Cardiff Canton to Yeovil Pen Mill ECS, 1C16 06:55 Yeovil Pen Mill to Bristol, 2V58 10:12 Bristol to Cardiff, 1O41 12:06 Cardiff to Bristol, 1V58 13:57 Bristol to Cardiff, 1O96 15:07 Cardiff to Bristol, 1V70 16:50 Bristol to Cardiff, 1O47 18:10 Cardiff to Bristol, and finally light diesel to Old Oak Common in multiple with the loco off the 1M79 16:28 Newquay to Bristol.
