The Class 50 Alliance took 50033 Glorious on loan in February 2018 from Tyseley Loco Works for an initial three year period, to restore it to operating condition and to operate it. Work on the locomotive continued at Tyseley under the guidance of Fifty Fund volunteers before the locomotive moved to Kidderminster TMD in June 2018 for contract work. It returned to traffic at the Class 50 Golden Jubilee event in October 2018 in mostly green undercoat, with the public invited to 'tag' the locomotive with graffiti in marker pen in exchange for a contribution towards its repaint.


50033 is advertised to appear at the SVR's Autumn Diesel Gala from 3-6 October. Tickets are on sale.
