Deltic Preservation Society 40th Anniversary Event

2017 is the 40th Anniversary of the foundation of the Deltic Preservation Society (which Avocet Travel Management sponsor).  In conjunction with the National Railway Museum/KOYLI Group, Beaver Sports and our hosts the Bluebell Railway we would like to announce a special event at the Bluebell Railway on Friday 6th to Sunday 8th October 2017.

The event will feature 4 working Deltics, D9002, D9009, 55019 and 55022 and we are working on a surprise visitor and will be a DELTIC only event.  We are at the early planning stages at the moment but some of the ideas we are following include at least one dining train on the Bluebell and if possible another on the main railway network organised by Avocet Travel Management, anybody who would like to express an interest in this would they please contact Neil at enquiries@avocettm.co.uk . Jason Cross at the East Midlands Photographic Society has been asked to organise an event on the Friday evening.

Please watch the five parties relevent webistes for further updates.
