Diesel running

With their now, to be expected, 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 08934 on a passenger train.

Depite receiving just two days notice, an impressive 101 people managed to make it to the roundhouse in time.
