23rd July 2011
The 23rd July 2011 was an historic day as this was the first time in 49 years since a Deltic has carried an original headboard. Looking resplendent in the summer sun, the D9009 carries The Elizabethan Railway Society’s original headboard.
This event was organised by the Deltic Preservation Society to commemorate 50 years since the introduction into service of D9009 Alycidon. The Elizabethan Railway Society would like to express their thanks to the Deltic Preservation Society and Barrow Hill's management in allowing this historic event to happen, marked a significant moment for The Elizabethan Railway Society,
