D9009 on the ‘Deltic Retro Scot III’

D9009 ‘ALYCIDON’ put in a great performance on Retro Railtours’ 10th Anniversary special, the ‘Deltic Retro Scot 3′, from Huddersfield to Edinburgh at the weekend, ctouching the magic 100 mph on a number of occasions on both the West Coast and East Coast Main Lines. A big thank you to our service crew who took it in turns to ride on and look after the loco (with an 02.32 departure from Burton, it was a long day, requiring several shifts) and also the team on board who ran the sales stand and raffle.

D9009 returned to Barrow Hill from York on Sunday morning, and its next planned outing is on the return leg of the A1 Steam Loco Trust’s on September 15th.

The picture below shows D9009 at Craigentinny, where the loco was fuelled and the coaching stock serviced.
