Pioneer Deltic 55022 ‘Royal Scots Grey’ will be running from Monday 2nd July to Thursday 5th July on our services to Whitby.

Built in 1960 at Vulcan Foundry in Newton-le-Willows, it entered service in February 1961 as D9000 and was the most powerful production diesel locomotive in the World. It was named ‘Royal Scots Grey‘ at a ceremony at Edinburgh Waverley in June 1962. Withdrawn in January 1982 it was rescued by the Deltic 9000 Fund in September 1983. Purchased by Beaver Sports in July 2004, it ran again in September 2006 and has been a performer at heritage railways and on the main line ever since.

Deltic is covering for 75029 stopped for boiler washout and 31128 which hasn't returned from Burton yet.

D7628 & 45428 are stopped for tyres / other works.
