To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Deltic Preservation Society (DPS), there is a gala at the Bluebell Railway this weekend (071017). The NRM's Deltic No. 2 and DPS's No. 7 set off yesterday morning (041017) from NRM York to collect DPS's no. 19 at Barrow Hill. The trio then went southwards, destination East Grinstead. Turning left at Syston junction, just north of Leicester, through Melton Mowbray, left at Manton Junction, routed them via Stamford (Lincolnshire!) and Peterborough and towards London. Video taken at Finsbury Park (erstwhile home of no. 9 "Alycidon") and seen making some clag!  And, just a reminder .... why they are special.

Many thanks to George and Doreen Coles for flying our flag at Sywell Young Aviators Day on Saturday 160917


 

 

 

Having carefully manoeuvred into the precise position for unloading, one member did not plan for the next step when preparing for the last Saturday party this year on 160917.

However, just like in his courting days, he managed to solve his problems by moving over into the passenger seat, but now it takes longer to get there!


 

 

 

There's always someone distracting you when you are working - Paul getting advice on Tuesday 120917

The Dreweatts auction is coming up again in September. Catalogue Here.

If prices seem low - remember the commission and VAT is added, a substantial hike on the hammer price. Additionally, very few models have current boiler certification.
 

 

 

 

A photo taken at another club when contractors were working. A solution for a current cable problem perhaps?

This is a joke
