50149 Kidderminster 16 October 1999

Unfortunately I never did get a picture of 50049 Defiance whilst it was operating as a re-geared freight locomotive, and numbered 50149. However, as it was cosmetically restored into Class 50/1 guise in the early days of its preservation, I was at last able to get some pictures of it in Railfreight General livery. Here is a good side view of the locomotive at Kidderminster on 16 October 1999, while it was taking part in the Severn Valley Railway' Diesel Gala. Note the unusual yellow backed nameplate.
