IRIS II at Keith.

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.
