Diesel running

When PLEG discovered that 08834 was returning to Barrow Hill for a routine exam it was an opportunity that we couldn't miss.

With their usual efficiency, the Barrow Hill Engine Shed Society (BHESS), with the very kind support of the Harry Needle Railroad Company (HNRC), organised our request to run 08834 on a passenger train.
