A distinguishing feature of the Barrow Hill Open Days of the 1970s and early 1980s was the shuttle train utilizing one of the depots Class 03s. Below are listed the known dates of the Barrow Hill Open Days, the Class 03 used on that days shuttle & on static display and the other principal exhibits.  Dates of any other Open Days and which Class 03s were used for the shuttle and were on static display would be very much welcomed by Peter Hall.

Were any Open Days held before 1969 and in 1973, 1975, 1976 and 1977?
