Now that's an engine!

Napier Deltic engines also powered ships.

Remember Spitting Image? This was their take on railway privatisation. Remarkably astute methinks.

I had a big blue friction toy Deltic when I was a kid... loved it.

But.. where have they been for 30 years?  Have they been waiting in sidings like Green Goddess fire engines, rusting away?
Have they been maintained?   I just assumed they had all been broken up.

Six class 55's have been preserved and are still running today. They are kept at Barrow Hill.
