Dont know to answer your question but looking at RTT and 0Z50 the loco(s) run up as far as Calvert before returning to QRD. At QRD the line there is single track with no direct access to the Steam Centre. How do you know there are 3 three loco's?

From GB Railfreight facebook page (with picture):

GB Railfreight and The Class 50 Alliance were delighted to team up today to provide a wedding day surprise for GWRs managing director Mark Hopwood.
Marks fiance Tanya, well aware that Mark is a lifelong Class 50 fan, got in touch with both parties to see if we could arrange the attendance of these locos to support the perfect post-wedding photo shoot.
The arrangements were kept top secret and Mark had no idea that after the wedding he was off to Quainton Road station where three of the Class 50 Alliances excellent locos nos 50007, 50035 and 50049 were waiting, having been delivered from the Severn Valley Railway this morning by ourselves.

Congratulations from all of us at GBRf to the happy couple...
