The DPS owns 3 Class 55 Deltics, 55009 ALYCIDON which is currently certified for Network Rail and is available for both main line and heritage line hire, albeit the latter is restricted so as not to impinge on main line hire. The loco is Dual Braked and ETS available on production of Test Certificates for each vehicle. Steam Heat not available
55019 ROYAL HIGHLAND FUSILIER has been our stalwart for 40 years on the heritage circuit, as well as a stint on Network Rail in the early 2000s. It is currently ‘stopped’ pending maintenance works and the installation of both OTMR & GSMR equipments to make it compliant for NR operations - hopefully this should be completed later in 2023. The loco is dual braked and ETS available on production of Test Certificates for each vehicle. Steam Heat not available.
Finally, D9015 TULYAR which has not worked since 13th April 1997. This loco should be available for traffic by the autumn of 2023, and will be going to the Great Central Railway for running in trials and a couple of special events. The loco will then be based at the GCR until at least summer 2024 and then will become available for heritage hire before fulfilling our ambition to have all three locomotives NR registered. No Heat/ETS available initially.
