50049 & 50031 Lickey Incline   On 25th March 2006 Pathfinder ran the the 'Redmire Rambler' taking two Class 50's from Cardiff to York and on to Redmire. 50049 ' Defiance' & 50031 'Hood' are pictured here tackling the Lickey Incline at Vigo in Bromsgrove at 07:58. The rear bogie on 50031 was at this point throwing out some smoke which effected the clarity of the coaching stock on this exposure.
