The half term holiday saw the first ‘yellow’ timetable of 2015. Three Ratty steam engines were in service, River Mite, River Irt and Northern Rock. They were supplemented by one diesel turn per day, Douglas Ferreira for the first few days of the week, until problems with the fuel filter saw it replaced by Lady Wakefield. Many trains ran full with few spare seats.
Synolda was also steamed for her boiler inspection which was passed successfully.
