55019 successfully worked its three weeks of diagrams at the SVR. The period did include continuous running over seven days which included the Diesel Gala, driver experiences, service trains and the additional Sunday service. Thanks to the SVR for inviting us and making us so welcome and from the DPS side the locomotive crew and sales.
