North Norfolk Railway visit

Further to last week’s posting regarding the possible visit of 55019 to the NNR, please see the statement below from the North Norfolk Railway:

“Following the unfortunate incident leading to the withdrawal of Deltic 55009 from our 2019 Mixed Traction Gala plans, the Deltic Preservation Society were able to offer us Deltic 55019 as a substitute locomotive, however, unlike 55009, 55019 is not currently fitted with the necessary equipment to bring itself to us via Network Rail, and as a result would have needed two chaperone locomotives to top and tail the locomotive to and from us due to a lack of run round facilities at Cromer. Unfortunately, the additional costs associated with additional locomotives, has meant that unfortunately, we were not able to take up the kind offer of 55019. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the DPS, and look forward to a Deltic visiting in future.”
