    97654 arrived at Peak Rail early April 2005. It was used to give brake van rides at Rowsley during the diesel event on 24/4/05 and i wonder if this was the first time one of this class has been used to haul passengers. The only other possibility would be at a BR Open Day but i can't recall any such use from memory.

    i think 97651 has been used to haul passengers, although it is currently broken, and we haven't got enough money to restore it at the present moment

    97651 was being used on passenger services at Northampton & Lamport in June 2000 - I got my haulage in (and a nice pic somewhere in an album)
