4 SUB No. 4732
4 SUB No. 4732 shows its Bulleid-designed curved profile well, as it forms the shuttle service to Ramsgate. The
unit received the green livery during its final overhaul in 1982, and remained serviceable until 1995, when it
went into storage. Fortunately, this 4 SUB survived into preservation and can now be found at the Coventry
Railway Centre. © John Horton
''Deltic'' (Class 55) No. D9000 ''Royal Scots Grey''
D9000 became the first ''Deltic'' to appear at Margate. Standing beside the locomotive are Mick Timms (on the
left), the founder of ''D9000 Locomotives Limited'', and, on the right, the Area Manager. The descriptive board
showed a history of D9000 and was made by John Horton, to be shown at other exhibitions the locomotive would
attend. The ''D9000 Locomotives Limited'' was later declared bankrupt, but the locomotive has thankfully passed
into safe hands. © John Horton
