5081 at Irwell Vale on 7th July 2012

Making a rare trip away from its home base at the Gloucestershire & Warwickshire Railway, Class 24 No. 5081 made the journey north to attend the East Lancs Railway Summer Diesel Gala over the weekend of 6th-8th July 2012. Looking resplendent in BR blue with full yellow ends and white headcode markers, the Type 2 machine approaches Irwell Vale with the 2J72 12:46 Rawtenstall to Heywood service on 7th July 2012.
