2017 is the 40th Anniversary of the foundation of the Deltic Preservation Society. In conjunction with the NRM/KOYLI Group, Beaver Sports and our hosts the Bluebell Railway we would like to announce a special event at the Bluebell Railway on Friday October 6th to Sunday October 8th.
The event will feature 4 working Deltics, D9002, D9009, 55019 and 55022 and we are working on a surprise visitor – it will be a Deltic ONLY event. We are at the early planning stages at the moment, but some of the ideas we are following include at least one dining train on the Bluebell and, if possible, another on the National Network organised by Avocet Travel Management - anybody who would like to express an interest in this, please contact Neil at enquiriesATavocettm.co.uk (please replace AT with @). Jason Cross at the East Midlands Railway Photographic Society has been asked to organise an event on the Friday evening.
Please watch the five party’s relevant websites for further updates.
