Midland Railway Centre - 23rd September, 1984
Billed as the Great Gable Spectacular, this event was run to mark the 25th anniversary of D4s introduction to service. 97201 was still with the RTC at the time, and was a welcome additional draw. The only downside for me was the interminably long ride on a Trent Bristol VR from Nottingham on the old route 231. Despite it being a Sunday, the running times seemed arranged for a weekday, with long waits at several timing points on route!
