D1015 is seen at Plymouth waiting to depart with 1Z52 to 'The Western Challenger' to Okehampton. The Western had run non-stop from Paddington to just outside of Plymouth station. This was a partial re-run of a tour 50 years ago when D1010 'Western Campaigner' ran non-stop from Paddington to Penzance. To commemorate this tour D1015 ran as D1010 'Western Campaigner' on one side (and D1058 'Western Nobleman' on the other side as part of the DTG commercial arrangement whereby enthusiasts can sponsor the nameplate and numberplate to raise funds for the DTG).
