Deltic Class 55006 The Fife and Forfar Yeomanry at Fletton

Deltic Class 55006 The Fife and Forfar Yeomanry at Fletton on a train with three Pullmans and the rest mark ones.

This class 55 Deltic 55006 is on one of the last BR Pullman trains along the ECML. These Pullman trains ran with only, as here three Pullman coaches, the rest of the train was normal stock.

Pullman trains be for the 2nd World War and in the 1950s and 1960s a cut above your normal trains for comfort and service. The new Mark threes in the HSTs gave a better ride than the old Pullmans to every one at no extra cost to the passenger. These Pullman trains were stopped and the coaches sold or scrapped.

The Orient Express has showed how to use the old Pullmans on the main line, do them up to their former glory, and put on a top class meal and a top class service.

This website is Ukrailways1970tilltoday.me.uk  it is on railways, but it is not just on trains, but all things railways, with photos, which I have taken from the 1970s till now. I take photos of all things railways, steam diesel and electric trains, signal boxes, wagons any thing that is on the National Rail network, which was BR when I started taken photos.

Today EWS, East Coast, Central trains and EWS are just some of the names on the trains. The name on the train does not mean, thats whos train it is these days. 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!
