Deltic locomotive back in service due to freight demand

Deltic Locomotives were built to replace the steam engines that once hurtled down the tracks between London and Edinburgh, but has not seen active service on British railways for 30 years.

Now the diesel train is back for a few weeks at least, as the demand to move freight by rail rather than road increases, as Tim Muffett reports.
