Deltics at Kings Cross
Class 55 Deltic Tulyar at Kings Cross
Class 55 Deltic Tulyar at Kings Cross
Class 55 Deltic Tulyar gets ready for the off with a train to the north from Kings Cross. These Deltics were the main locomotive of the East Coast Main Line, and many wish they were still.
This Deltic 55 015 Tulyar (D9015) was named after a race horse, which had won the Epsom Derby in 1952. The LNER had also named some of its steam locomotives after race horses.
3 Deltics at Kings Cross Station
Not just one but three Deltics in Kings Cross at once. Will we ever see it again at Kings Cross?
One wonders with all the new rules, if today the red gas cylinders for the stop lights would be placed where they are, and the sleepers used as buffer stops? The station would be closed for weeks!
Kings Cross station is one of the main London railway stations. The station is in the North of London. Trains run from here to the North East via the East Coast Main Line.

These names keep changing, but that means I have to keep taking photos. I also take photos of preserved railways with steam diesel and electric trains.There is lots more to add and I keep taking More
