FROM THE FILES: 50007 reprieve

With 50007 Hercules changing hands, RAIL looks back to December 1991 when we reported our sponsorship of the locomotive's maintenance for 12 months. 
At the time the Class 50 had been condemned, but a return was planned due to its popularity. 

  • For details of the sale of 50007, and its future, read RAIL 814, published on November 23.
