Hi guys,
Today at 1pm, 55022 arrived at Castlecroft shed from Barrow Hill, after it's 3 year overhaul by owner Martin Walker and the DPS (Deltic Preservation Society). They have done an awsome job, and Martin's massive ammount of effort and time has payed off - the loco is amazing!
I managed to get a cabride on it from Heywood (Green Lane crossing) to Castlecroft with Martin and Dave, as Tim and I went up to meet 55022 at the stop board where NR meets the ELR.

I took a few pictures, but Rory Lushman (a fellow Diesel Dept worker) took some better ones.

Here is one of the cab:

Ski jump, with me in the 2nd man seat, and Martin Walker doing heads out at the rear of the loco!

Some clagtastic shots by Rory on his gallery at http://rorylushman.fotopic.net

Cheers,

BTW: I can now say that I was the 4th person from the whole of the ELR to be on 55022! :D
