RCTS Special, Page's Park, 10th June 2015
The LBNGR laid on a special train for the RCTS Watford Branch trip and the train awaits the party in the platform at Page's Park. The train was hauled by one of the line's original Simplex locos, No. 43, hauling Observation Coach No. 8 and Brake/Guard's Van No. 5 "Isabel". No. 8 was originally a standard gauge four wheel diesel railcar, built by Baguley in 1958 for the MoD and used as a fire protecttion unit on the Bicester Military Railway. It was later converted to a coach by Alan Keef Ltd, mounted on bogies from Poland and carries PKP plaques on each end. No. 5 was built on the frame of a Simplex diesel. 11:03, Wednesday 10th June 2015. Digital Image No. IGMP9529.
