What if after replacement with HSTs on the ECML, the Deltics were relegated to secondary duties and survived long enough to wear large logo blue?

St Paddy at York

55001 St Paddy is at the head of the 16.00 Edinburgh - Kings Cross, it is a late summer evening at York and the peace is only broken by the engines of 55001 rising to a crescendo as the driver opens up to get his train away smartly. Behind the Deltic is a headcode disc fitted class 40 and a rake of Motrorail vans. The train spotters, have mid 70's style long hair and extreme flaired trousers, an interest in railways was not a social disease then. 14/07/1976
