The awesome sight and sound of a Deltic at speed, the first time for some 17 years. D9000 pilots 47884 through Appleby with 1O40, 0910 Edinburgh to Brighton. Train could be heard for several miles before it appeared, as it came into sight the driver shut off the power. As he came past the signalbox he opened the throttle and the two Napier Deltic D18-25 two stroke 1650hp powerplants screamed into life and the train tore through the station about 70-80mph. It made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up!!
