Grand Finale 2

55 022 laid down a fine trail of smoke as it accelerated the very last Deltic hauled train to run under BR auspices away from Edinburgh Waverley on 2 January 1982. The cold wet weather was somehow appropriate for such a sombre occasion. Note the umbrellas among the watching crowds and the "polis" stationed at the end of the platform to ensure nobody was disrespectful.
