During the Silver Jubilee event of 1994 Michael Hunt took the opportunity to catch these shots of a superbly turned out Quainton stalwart Gibraltar and visitor 5MT Merlin from the Watercress Line. You can see pictures of other stars of the event on the back pages. The Quainton based locos were turned out in LT liveries in recognition of the LRPS heritage of the BRC.
