Regarding the "Welsh Dragon" service, it was agreed that this be worked by diesel units unless the oil fuel situation deteriorates, in which case it may be necessary for the service to revert to steam; the Public Relations & Publicity Officer will arrange publicity as necessary.
Noted that, in order to lift the traffic offering during the summer period on the Llandudno-Blaenau Festiniog Branch it will be necessary for five additional 2-car units to be used.
Request from B.I.F. authorities for exhibition of 63'6" diesel unit. Mr.Stanley reported that at the time of the Fair, Derby Works will be producing units for the Western Region and the design of these cars make them unsuitable for exhibition purposes.
