50007, 50049, D8059 and D8188 ran from the WSR to Butterley on the 14th. I filmed them at Tamworth, then later, after leaving the 20s at Butterley they are seen passing Tamworth again. Finally, after catching the train back from Tamworth, I saw the 50s a third time - at Old Hill.

All publicly available knowledge:

GBRf used the 50s to WSR in multiple as part of their training on the class for mainline runs later this year.

After their arrival the 20s were announced yesterday as a late addition to the Midland Railway Centre's diesel gala, replacing a non-appearing class 60. D8188 at the WSR was not on full power.
