Diesel running

After what seemed like an age, and with one minor hiccup with a fault being found before our previously advertised running date, Barrow Hill provided their usual arrangements for three mid-week evening round trips behind a sought-after shunter.

107 people braved the rush hour traffic and winter temperatures in order to sample the shunter for haulage.
