DELTICS A Personal Recollection

Regular price £9.99
Acknowledged by enthusiasts and professionals alike as amongst the greatest locomotives of all time, the Deltics are featured in this latest volume by Tony Wright. Using photographs mainly of his own taking, this is a pictorial chronology of this celebrated class from their first appearance in 1961 through to their final swansong year of 1981. The locos are recorded mainly on their established racing grounds from Kings Cross to Edinburgh and Kings Cross to Leeds, ranging from the principal long-distance express passenger trains of the day right through to final workings to and from York and Cleethorpes. All the main livery manifestations are presented in full colour. It’s hoped that this pictorial volume will stir memories of those who saw this unique class throughout its life, or give a glimpse to those too young to remember these 22 giants; whether being deafened in the confines of a great station or out in the wilds alongside the East Coast Main Line, that distinctive Napier twin roar was unmistakable.
