Hey all, I have just been sitting at tuxford and I have seen a DRS 37 and what I assume to be a Mk3 DVT in a blue livery (like metallic blue-silver). Any ideas what it was doing?

Thanks. It confused me for a second, I was thinking 'is that a broken hst power car' then I realised it was a DVT and thought 'maybe they are using a dvt to replace the broken power car on a hst set. Despite there not being a broken power car anywhere :).

It's nice to see that some money is being spent by GA then :)

That would, I think, be a fairly pointless exercise as I don't think a Mk4 DVT could talk to a HST power car.
