On selected days throughout the year the Class 50 50027 'Lion' will be operating in addition to our standard steam service.
The class were named after ships of the Royal Navy in the late 1970's following the withdrawal of the Warship Class of locomotives. The class 50's were regular performers on Waterloo to Exeter expresses until withdrawal in the 1990's. 50027 Lion is one of those repainted in Network South East livery for these trains, a livery it still carries.
Lion returned to the MHR on 14th June 2012 from the NYMR.
