50035 Old Oak 02/09/17
Old Oak Common depot had a 111th Anniversary Open Day on Saturday 2nd September 2017. Benefiting from glorious weather, the highlight was a 'Legends of the Great Western' line up. Taking centre stage, quite properly, was 50035 'Ark Royal' - back home at Old Oak. Six other class 50s were also in attendance, just visible, and it must be many years since there were seven Hoovers on shed here at the same time.
The line up, from left to right, is 6023 'King Edward II', 7903 'Foremarke Hall', D821 'Greyhound', D1015 'Western Champion', 50035 'Ark Royal', 43002 'Sir Kenneth Grange', 180102 and 800003 'Queen Victoria'.
