As an added attraction to the Bluebell Railway visit by the three Deltics, Bluebell Railway President, Gordon Pettitt, will be presenting a talk, Trial Trips and Deltic performance on the ECML
Date: Saturday 7th October 2017
Time: 14.15 to 14.45
Venue: Birch Grove Suite which is the function room above the Bessemer Arms Restaurant at Sheffield Park Station. This does have disabled access.
Apart from being BRPS President, Gordon was a Manager on the Eastern Region of British Railways when the Deltics were introduced and so has a unique insight into their performance in the early days and so is obviously of interest to DPS members.
Do tell your friends – Mr Pettitt, also later GM of the Southern Region, has a wealth of anecdotes.
