    Sorry to be pedantic, but No.10 didn't have a plural name. ;)

    Just for interest, the first Deltic I saw was No.7 in 1976, the last (in BR service), No.15 in 1982. Amazing how six years seemed to last so much longer then than it does now!

    No problem - thank you for correcting me!

    And to think that once upon a time, I knew the names of all 22 Deltics and all 34 A4s, and used to recite them to help me get to sleep... :)

    As for your other comment - I swear time is logarithmic.
