IRIS 2 at Roseisle, May 1998

IRIS 2 was one of two diesel units converted by the Research & Development Division of British Railways to be used as test vehicles all over the network. It was converted in 1991 from a power twin unit and became known as "Lab 19 - Iris II". In late 2007 it was retired and six months later was sold to the West Somerset Railway. Shortly after it was sold to the Barry Island Railway.

The Hopeman Branch of the Highland Railway, opened in 1862, now runs as far as the Roseisle Maltings which was opened by the multinational drinks company, Diageo, in 1979. Roseisle was a single platform halt.
