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.
The reskinning of the no. 2 end nose is now nearly complete - the photos below show the progress as of Monday evening and make an interesting comparison with the recent updates.
Progress will be made at the same rate through the winter but it will not necessarily be VISUAL progress - keep checking back here for updates and other news.
Friend of the Baby Deltic Project, Colin Alexander has written a splendid book about Pilot Scheme Diesels featuring, of course, Baby Deltics.
In an act of remarkable generosity the profits of this book are to be split between the Baby Deltic Project and the group restoring 'Co-Bo' D5705.
The book launches on 15 May 2017 and you can follow the link here to buy your copy and help the BDP. Many, many thanks to Colin for supporting the project.
