The weekend of 2/3 July saw the Dean Forest Railway run their Branchline Gala. This featured the debut of Mike Little's second autocoach into service. His 14xx number 1450 is seen here sandwiched between two autocoaches just after leaving Parkend and about to pass over a foot crossing. The car nearest the camera is a BR-built type and has been named "Chaffinch". Whilst not running in BR service with this name two cars from this batch were indeed named "Wren" and "Thrush".
