I got a number of opportunities to photograph one of my favourite locomotives types in 2012, the Class 55 Deltic (most of the footage being lost to a HDD failure a few summers later).

On Tuesday 20th July 2004 I made a trip on the Yorkshire Coastliner to York to go on the loose with my trusty old Olympus AM-100 compact film camera.
Once I got the developed pictures back, I made a webpage with the scanned pics from the trip that I never really fully finished but at least got the pictures from York Station onto it.
From what I can vaguely recall the page had a brief spurt of fame on Yahoo groups before fading into obscurity in the deepest, darkest depths of my webhosting space until now when I needed to make space. Continue reading “July 2004 Trip to York Revisited”
