Network 150 Day - (04) Class 55 (Deltic) "Royal Scots Grey" diesel loco no. 55022 (D9000)
Photographed at Waterloo Station in October 1988, at Ian Allan's Network 150 Day. Built in 1961 by English Electric for express passenger services on the East Coast main line (London King's Cross to Edinburgh). It has worn several different liveries over the years, both in British Rail ownership and in preservation. In 1988 at Waterloo, it was in the livery it wore for most of its early years with British Rail. Around 1966 British Rail started to paint the class in its corporate colour of Rail Blue with yellow ends. By the end of 1981 all the class had been withdrawn, but a number are in preservation.
