Here's the informed OFFICIAL source!! NBI from GM.....

The Class 50 Golden Jubilee that recently took place on the 4th 6th October has recorded excellent passenger numbers, 3,574 in fact.

The idea to have an event based on a single type of diesel was considered a strong proposition by the Diesel Committee with the 50th anniversary this year and their connections resulted in the ability to bring 11 Class 50 diesels together in a near unique gathering.

An estimate of 2,263 passengers over the three-day event was set as a target, therefore the recorded result has surpassed both the budget and I think all expectations.

An event like this takes considerable planning; working with Owners of Class 50 diesels, gaining their permission to attend and organising the logistics for their arrival.

May I take this opportunity to thank all the Class 50 Owners for their cooperation in bringing together the 11 locos and to thank the Diesel Committee and Diesel Department Volunteers for organising this excellent event.

It really has been a great success and the Committee are already thinking about a suitable Diesel event for October 2019!
