Prototype Deltic - Built in Preston
The prototype Deltic arrived at RSR on 9th August 2012 and is on public view in the museum until at least October 2015. She has kindly been loaned by the NRM. The loco was built in 1955 in Preston, only about a mile from where she is now proudly displayed.
Ribble Steam Railway houses a collection of treasures, including many priceless people. Due to year on year growth, this popular Preston attraction is now looking for people with new skills to join their enthusiastic volunteer team.
