55019 stars at Crewe Open Day

Yesterday saw 55019 ‘ROYAL HIGHLAND FUSILIER’ on display at the ‘All Change’ Open Day event at Crewe diesel depot, along with some 40 plus other exhibits (including a rare chance to see Locomotive Services two Deltics, D9016 ‘GORDON HIGHLANDER’ and 55022 ‘ROYAL SCOTS GREY’).

55019 is, of course, no stranger to Crewe, having been based at the Carriage Shed on the opposite side of the main line during the VSOE years (1999-2000). During this period, the loco and D9009 regularly visited Crewe Diesel Depot for fuelling.
