Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Deltic Preservation Society is a railway preservation group based in the United Kingdom dedicated to the preservation and restoration of the remaining Class 55 "Deltic" diesel locomotives operated by British Rail from the 1960s to the 1980s. The society was founded in 1977 following the entry into service of the High Speed Train. A group of Class 55 enthusiasts made the decision to join together to ensure that a working locomotive was kept running, forming the Deltic Preservation Society to raise funds to this end. By 1982, when the Class 55 was withdrawn, the Society numbered over 1500, with the result that it was able to purchase two locomotives, D9009/55009 and D9019/55019, from British Rail.show more
