50036 Victorious Nameplate 24 May 1990

50036 was named Victorious in May 1978. Being a solid aluminuim casting, the plate still looks in good condition twelve years later, but the same cannot be said for the loco's bodywork! The low evening sun picks out all the brush marks of the hand painted finish, and more worryingly all the rust patches. This picture was taken at Heyford on 24 May 1990.
