Deltic.

Named after one of the greatest diesel trains ever. I did spend some time a long time ago on many a station waiting for these beasts to roll by.
Why does this picture remind me of the above train? Well I had stretched my imagination to breaking point looking for a name, when a postcard
arrived from the past (a friend had just been to York Train Museum) with a beautiful photograph of the afore mentioned work horse and voila
Deltic it became. It feels full of power and noise, I had a fleeting glimpse into the world of train spotting and like many other fleeting glimpses
i.e. fishing, stamp collecting, kiteing, model aeroplanes, sumo - one underlying image remains in my skull that of the Deltic Diesel Engine.

P.S They all had names, and now no longer grace our tracks.
