19th November 2014

Some twenty four years after being withdrawn Network Southeast liveried Class 50 No.50026 'Indomitable' returned to Taunton (sadly not under it's own power) on the 19th November 2014.. The locomotive was hauled from Eastleigh Works to Taunton by DC Rail's Class 31/6 No.31601. The Class 50 will be used on the 2014 Dartmoor Railway 'Polar Express' trips this year. The working recessed in Taunton overnight on the 19th/20th November before continuing to The Dartmoor Railway. The Class 50 operated it's last mainline train in November 1990 so perhaps it's a little apt that 24 years later it should revisit it's old stamping ground of the rails of the South West .
