The DPS owns the number 2 end cab from 55008 The Green Howards, which was scrapped at Doncaster Works in August 1982. It was acquired at the same time as Tulyar was purchased, back in 1986. Mounted on a trailer, it has, over the years, toured the country and visited many events and Open Days. In 2004, however, it became a live Deltic again! 

With modern technology, 55008 was able to be driven along the ECML again using 'Trainz' simulator software. The cab appeared at various events in this guise, but has now been retired and has recently undergone restoration at Crowle Wharfe Engineers Ltd.
