    Damn. This is passing near me. I've never seen a 68 in the flesh, that and a Deltic together would be quite a sight. Curse this working for a living. Someone get photos!

    Not really Deltic related but interesting that LSL are using DRS to do the movement, good to see a further player in the market.

    In an incident many years ago which prompted me to get winter tyres for the BMW, I very nearly did indulge in said practice on the four-lane section of the A1(M) near Peterborough... :D

    Yes, I've seen it and in todays market IMO it's a very decent price. Maybe York to KX, a Deltic stomping ground, what's not to like.:Happy:
