55009, "Class 55", Deltic55009_20131004_0855009 Alycidon at Severn Valley Railway, Bewdley

Two Deltics were visitors to the 2013 diesel gala at the Severn Valley Railway. Having lived in York during the late 1970s and 1980s these machines will always bring back fond memories.

My memory of these machines, in the twilight of their career, was of them looking tired in BR blue and being filthy. I recall the joy at the time when locomotive 55002 was out-shopped in the classic two-tone green, albeit with full yellow front ends.
