Wensleydale Railway

55019 Royal Highland Fusilier entered service with British Rail (BR) in December 1961 and was based at Haymarket depot in Edinburgh. It was the last Deltic to be named, the ceremony being held at Glasgow Central station in September 1965. It was renumbered from D9019 in November 1973 and was one of only five members of the class to undergo the extensive Heavy General Repairs (HGR) overhaul at Doncaster works.55019 worked its last train on 31st December 1981, hauling the Aberdeen-York service between Edinburgh and York. This was the final BR Deltic-hauled service train. The locomotive was withdrawn the same day due to it being surplus to requirements after over 20 years of active service.
