Returning to the Borders for the first time in more than 50 years, 50007 Hercules is an object of admiration at Tweedbank on 5th January 2019. Kenneth Gray's (2009, unpublished) 'Diesel locomotives known to have worked into or through Hawick' records that, as D407, it was one of twelve of the 50-strong Class 50 fleet to have traversed the Waverley Route, almost certainly in June or July 1968, during a signalmen's strike on the northern section of the WCML.
