May 1980 was the 150th anniversary of the original Rainhill Trials which was won by the "Rocket". In May 1980 British Rail re-enacted these trials on the same stretch of the Liverpool to Manchester Railway.
Deltic 55015 "Tulyar" hauls 86214 (the modern day "Sans Pareil") past the crowds. The Deltics were diesel electrics built by English Electric at their Vulcan Works in Newton-Le-Willows, just up the line from here. They were introduced in 1961 and worked on the East Coast Mainline until 2 January 1982.
