On 22nd January GBRF Class 50  50049 Defiance and 50007 Hercules set off from their Severn Valley Railway base at Kidderminster. They headed for Wembley Inter City Depot where they collected three Mk3 Caledonian Sleeper coaches and ran in top & tail formation to Laira depot where they overnighted. This morning, again in top & tail with one of the coaches they left Laira depot and headed for the Long Marston storage facility (near Stratford upon Avon), before returning home to Kidderminster. Thanks to Noel Downie for his pictures as they passed through Totnes and to Nick Campbell for the video as they approached the Teignmouth dock area.
