We are delighted to announce completion of the purchase of D9016 ‘Gordon Highlander’, the loco should be collected from the HNRC facilty at Barrow Hill early next week by 55 022 and moved to it’s new home at the East Lancashire Railway. As previously announced both Deltics should operate at the Railway on Saturday 9th of January and we look forward to seeing many there for what promises to be an entertaining day.

Thanks very much to all who have made generous donations recently and purchased items from our sales department, all helps immensely returning ‘Royal Scots Grey’ to twin engine mainline operation. Also special thanks to HNRC and Barrow Hill staff for their co-operation, Dave Greenwood for spending all of today examining the loco and special thanks to the East Lancashire Railway for allowing us to base another locomotive there.

May I also take this opportunity to wish everyone all the best wishes for 2010.
