SRPS Diesel Gala, 29th December 2016


Here is a taster from the Bo'ness Diesel Gala, with more locomotive focused updates to follow through the forthcoming period.

 "Bo'ness TMD". 20020, 37685, 08443, 37261, 37067 (37703) and 27001.

Mk3B DVT 82113 (BR Derby, 1988) was delivered to Bo'ness within the past month, following storage at Long Marston, It is understood to have a private owner, who has planned some technical work, but details are unknown. (Update: owned by 'Artemis' as part of a development programme for a new DMU generation, may be related to this 2012 report)

Royal Scotsman liveried 66743 was a no-show, as on the Tuesday / Wedensday it was at Inverness following a failure of the southbound sleeper, although it was suggested that 73966 was at fault, and this now seems to be held at Craigentinny.
