55019 in action at the SVR

55019 arrived safely at the SVR on Monday evening ready for three weeks of events including mid week service train, driver experiences and gala. Wednesday was the first working of two experience trains. Next weekend Thursday to Saturday Diesel Gala (plus running day on Wednesday) would be a good opportunity to see the only operational Deltic locomotive in the world!
