One of the highlights of the SVR gala on 3rd October 2019 was the return to passenger service of Class 50 No. 50033 'Glorious' which has been returned to a 'Glorious' condition following an extensive overhaul after a number of years out of use. 50033 participated in the 'Class 50' event in October 2018 when it operated in 'back to metal' condition complete with hundreds of messages written on the body-sides. Following more detailed work at Kidderminster TMD and at an off site facility the superb finished job is captured in these images of 50033 as it is seen at Highley making its maiden passenger run in its new livery, heading the 09:50 'local' working from Kidderminster to Highley.
