50029 Grateley 11 May 1991

In what was to be one of the only decent spells of sunshine during the entire day, 50029 Renown slows down for its booked stop at Grateley on 11 May 1991 whilst working the 2O82 06:45 Exeter St Davids to Waterloo Network SouthEast service. In fact judging by the background of this picture, the clouds are already starting to blot out the sun! Note the difference in colour between the locomotive and the coaches. Initially all NSE stock was in the lighter blue, but latterly some locos were repainted into this darker shade.
