    SD used the SRPS set, while the other two sets are owned by Riviera. They are owned Barry Cordell who is also a director ( and possibly Owner) of Pathfinder and Torbay Express.

    I beg to differ - Steam Dreams definitely used a Riviera set at one point that contained a mixture of maroon, chocolate & cream, blood and custard and a blue and white Mk2! I travelled on it several times. You are right in saying that they used the SRPS set but that was in addition to not instead of a Riviera one.

    You are correct,I remember that "rainbow" set,it was OK inside but needless to say loathed by the lineside brigade. SD used the SRPS set a lot in 2013 just before they switched from DBC to WCRC as TOC providor.

    And this posting yet again poses the question of whose benefits these tours are run for. The loco owners and the paying punters or linesiders ?
