Its Blue!

We are pleased to announce that the locomotive that Avocet Travel Management have sponsored the repaint of is now in rail blue.

As can be seen from the picture below a magnificent job has been undertaken.  Prior to fitting of numbers and nameplates D9009 “Alycidon” stands in the RVEL workshop in immaculate condition.

The official launch of the locomotive will take place at the Deltic Preservation Societies AGM to be held in March 2016 at York where the locomotive will be on display in National Railway Museum’s Great Hall.
