Tulyar's Last Stand

After arriving from King's Cross with the final northbound special on 2 January 1982, 55 015 retired to Haymarket Depot where it was the centre of attention. Unlike some sheds further south, most Scottish depots were very welcoming to enthusiasts and a sizeable crowd gathered to pay their last respects. Serious photography was out of the question.

With the agreement of the foreman, a couple of us returned after dark to take some time exposures. The crowds had gone and "Tulyar" sat outside the shed awaiting its very last run, back to York light engine.
