Galleries: (choose from the list)

The 2003 diesel gala at Barrow Hill, on 4th-5th October, was titled "First Born" and gathered as many first-of-class or prototype locomotives together as possible. The final list included: 08 D3000; 14 D9500; 20 D8000; 26 D5300; 37 D6700; 40 D200; 47/7 47701; "DELTIC"; a cab from DP2 (honest); 58 58001; 66/0 66001; 66/5 66501; 66/6 66601; 84 84001; and 85/1 85101.

The 2003 diesel gala saw E3003 (81002), 82008 and 73138 remain in the roundhouse on display.

86213's cab was opened up for visits and proved very popular.

The other locomotives were lined up behind 86213: 85101, 84001 and E3035 (83012) provide interesting livery contrasts.

The Group's stand was set up on the flatrol bed, whilst the cab from E3044 (84009) was also opened to the public. This was the last time the 84 cab was displayed.

Other interesting exhibits were on show near the AC line-up, with the prototype Deltic and a cab from 55008 mocked up as DP2.
