This video features the arrival at Horsted Keynes of BR class 55 "Deltic's" No's.55019 "Royal Highland Fusilier" and D9009 "Alycidon" ready for the Diesel Weekend. They are moved through the platforms at Horsted Keynes (also at Sheffield Park near the end of the video) by class 09018 in order to perform gauging tests. We then follow No.09018 as it shunts the "Elephant Van" No.4601 from platform 1 to the up yard. Following this No.09018 shuffles the "North London Tank" No.27505 and the "Ransomes & Rapier" 45 ton steam breakdown crane No.RS1083/45 to a new location in the up yard. The final action from Horsted Keynes is provided by U class No.1638 departing for Kingscote with the service train.

Deltic Twin Engine Start Up at Fishguard Harbour for the Western Wales Explorer
55022 starts up both Napier Engines in readiness to carry on working 1Z51 14:30 ROBESTON to CREWE. Whilst everybody decides at last minute to get their souvenir photos, I took a walk around the train to produce some study shots of the coaching stock used, and the EWS Livery Class 66 operated by DB Schenker. Included in this video are two shots of lorries using the port to show how close we were to the heart of operations. More videos from this trip coming shortly. Please also see the uploads by Robmasterman (Wales) & MG06ZT (Lickey Incline area) Please note the droaning sound you may hear from time to time was a fire engine filling the trains water tanks.
