The Society’s Members Day will take place on September 14th this year at the North Yorkshire Moors Railway during the line’s Diesel Weekend, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. The NYMR’s first Diesel Gala took place in 1983, and D9009 ‘Alycidon’, which was one of the locos which appeared at that event, will be returning to the line for the weekend. It will be joined by D821 ‘Greyhound’ (another former NYMR resident) and D1062 ‘Western Courier’ from the Severn Valley Railway, plus 31128 ‘Charybdis’ and Classes 08, 24, 25 and 37 from the home fleet.
D9009 will run on all three days of the gala (September 13th-15th). On Members Day, the Saturday, the loco will run to Battersby – if you are a DPS member, please see the next ‘Deltic Deadline’ or check back here nearer the time for further details. We look forward to seeing many of you at the NYMR, which was the society’s first home when 55009 and 55019 were saved in 1982.
