Welcome to the homepage of the BDP. From now on the latest updates, news, etc will appear here and then will migrate to the relevant part of the site to be replaced by the next new item.
Returning visitors will know all about us and our aims, new visitors may like to browse the site starting with the 'About us' link to the left.
A couple of pages on the (original) locos have been added, see the link 'Baby Deltics' to the left. Your comments are welcome.
A limited number of worksplates replicas cast in aluminium are available for sale. They are the same design as the ones to be carried by our recreated loco. These will be highly polished and painted, when finished they will be indistinguishable from those mounted on the loco. They are available at £85 each and can be ordered here - see the sales page for details.
Now really looking the part, D5910 stands under the lights at Barrow Hill following the trial fit of the templates for the revised cab windscreen arrangement. Drawn on a 3D CAD package and laser cut from 0.9mm steel these templates are used to confirm installation detail for the new windscreen frames - we think they look rather good.
The new frames will be laser cut from steel equal in thickness to the existing frames and welded in by skilled personnel in due course, following that new windows cut to a similar template will be procured and fitted - probably after all other aspects of the cab rebuild are completed.
