The KWVR are delighted to confirm, with thanks to our friends at the Deltic Preservation Society, that Class 55 ‘Deltic’, 55 019 ‘Royal Highland Fusilier’ will be our second visiting locomotive at our June Diesel Gala, taking place between 26 – 28th June. The locomotive last visited us in 2018 as part of the 50th Anniversary Gala and we’re delighted to see a Deltic return to Yorkshire metals once again as part of what is looking like a busy Summer for the locomotive.
