68 locos present including 177 my last "peak" for sight. 21 peaks were present. A good few of us youngsters had strayed slightly off limits to get the DMU's on what i assume was a DMU depot. As we exited we were challenged by BTP, initially asking us for name and addresses which for a young 15 year old like most of us was terrifying, considering our parents reaction to this. BTP were perhaps joking as he then allowed us to leave without any further ado.  I've rarely been impressed with BTP to this day, but today they have more critical roles than hastling young spotters at an open day perhaps.
