D9016 Water Orton 6 April 2002

Not one for the purists! D9016 Gordon Highlander in totally unauthentic but very striking Porterbrook livery passes Water Orton with the Pathfinder Tours 1Z40 07:22 Crewe to Scarborough 'Napier Navigator' railtour on 6 April 2002. At York the Deltic was replaced by slightly more conventional power in the shape of a pair of EWS 37s for the run to Scarborough via Bridlington. D9016 was originally only saved from the cutter's torch to provide spares for for its preserved classmates.
