British Railways Deltic diesel co-co locomotive No. 55009 'Alycidon' crosses Durham viaduct in 1975.
Alycidon entered service with British Railways in 1961 and named at Doncaster after the 1949 winner of the Ascot Gold Cup. It became a member of the legendary Finsbury Park depot of Deltics named after famous racehorses. It was renumbered from D9009 in January 1974 and was the last Deltic to record two million miles before individual mileage records for the Deltic fleet were abandoned.
55009 worked its last train in January 1982, working a Peterborough-Newcastle service.
