To my mind the balance between steam and diesel is about right at present, referring particularly to timetable "B". The 9-30 departure probably takes some pressure off the first steam departure from KDR at 10-15.

I come to the SVR for steam, but if the DMU's were used more often I would take a trip with them, as a "scenic" option, and as a reminder of my early working days in the 1960's when steam gave way to first generation DMU's.

Steam, period carriages pre-nationalisation and heritage stations gives us an edge and it must be marketed as such an attraction.

Diesels are definitely out of place in such an environment but a useful back up.
