D9009 Marholm 22 May 1999

D9009 Alycidon returned to the mainline on 22 May 1999 when it worked the Deltic Preservation Society 1Z45 11:35 York to Kings Cross railtour. It is seen here heading down the East Coast Mainline at Marholm, with the route to Stamford running parallel on the left. Great Western chocolate and cream coaches seem a little out of place on this route! This was certainly a day to be out on the ECML if you liked Deltics, as D9000 was also working a railtour.
