Heljan D8201 Class 15 crawling through the yard looking rather dirty entered service between November 1957 and November 1958.

Trailing behind D8201 are a couple of empty container wagons being manoeuvred into the headshunt.

The class were troubled by several reliability problems, notably with the engines which were found to require excessive maintenance. With a decline in freight duties in the London area, and as a relatively small and non-standard class, the type was considered surplus to requirements by the late 1960s. All were withdrawn from capital stock between April 1968 and March 1971. Only D8233 was purchased for preservation in 1984, and is now the only survivor of the type.

Heljan D5904 Class 23 on site looking prim and proper. Class 23 was also similar to the Class 55, but much shorter, leading to their nickname of Baby Deltics

D5904 powering through the yard with a newspaper train in tow.

The 'Baby Deltics', being only a ten-strong class, and beset with operational problems, were withdrawn between 1968 and 1971.On 5 September 2010, the Baby Deltic Project announced its plans to recreate a replica of the class. This is being achieved by way of shortening 37372's body in three places and mounting it on Class 20 bogies. The locomotive can be viewed in the Barrow Hill Roundhouse near Chesterfield where it currently undergoing the transformation from 37372 into D5910.
