The recent purchase of Deltic Class 55 No. D9016 Gordon Highlander by Beaver Sports owner Martin Walker was celebrated on 9th January 2010 when it operated on the East Lancs Railway which is now the locomotive's new home. The new resident is seen pilotting ETH-fitted Class 47 D1501 as they pull away from Irwell Vale with a Rawtenstall - Heywood service.
