Deltic through Bangor

55 019 Royal Highland Fusilier cruises through Bangor with the DPS tour on Saturday 13th May 2000

I returned for the homeward trip. Luckily for the photographers, 55 019 was held to allow the 16:22 Bangor to Crewe service to get away. Our subject is seen here drawing up to the signal.

55 019 waited here for five minutes before getting the green

Finally the eight coach train gets the go ahead and is swallowed up by Bangor tunnel

The production deltics were originally two-tone green but the exhaust has always been blue
