2008 Severn Valley Railway
50044 Exeter and 50049 Defiance attended the April 2008 diesel gala at the Severn Valley Railway. This gala was the first to be held since the repair of the damage sustained when storms swept away sections of the line in June 2007. The locomotives provided turns from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth and Kidderminster to Bewdley.
For more details of these particular locomotives see the preserved section of this website.
