    Cheers Guy. Yes I thought that when I saw it that it didn't look like it was on both engines.

    Good job it's not a road vehicle as it would fail an exhaust emissions test.

    Posted yesterday on their web site that The DPS have had to cancel the October tour. No reason has been given other than 'unforeseen circumstances'

    Reliving the past, December 30th 2017, we're having Alycidon through Dewsbury and Batley again. A Pathfinder day tour, Deltic from York to Liverpool and return. AND........it's going over Copy Pit in one direction.
    Happy days.:Happy:

    It would be fine - given it's age it would only be subject to a visual test to ensure it didn't obscure the view of traffic. Iirc, the MOT testing manual actually used to single out old two stroke diesels (back when there were still a few lorries about with them in) as particularly likely to be smokey but acceptable none the less!
