The Sunday service train on 22nd November was operated by loco No.2 Boy Roger as an experiment to see whether the little Mamods are capable of hauling the new and heavy Mk2 steel coaches. The service was run as a single coach train using coach 206.

Unfortunately No.2 was found to be not powerful enough and struggled on the gradients. So future Sunday services will have to use one of the lighter wooden-bodied vehicles such as coach 203.
