As you can see from the title of this post I am extending the range of the blog to include other lines which are 'in proximity' to the Winwick line. I intend to add further posts with the same title.
The first addition is from John Smith who photographed the 'A1 Locomotive Trust's' 4-6-2 No.60163, Tornado on February 5th. The Locomotive was working the Royal Train carrying Prince Charles and Lady Camilla from Preston to Manchester's Museum of Science & Industry. John was positioned on the southbound line at Parkside Junction. Thanks John - keep them coming.
The second pic is another archive gem from Eddie Bellass. A brand new, EE Type 3 diesel locomotive, D6969, is featured leaving the Vulcan Foundry in 1965. Subsequently re-numbered 37269 and 37417 the loco was put into storage by EWS in December 2008. For more info about this loco and others in class 37 go to http://www.c37lg.co.uk/
Anyone else with pics/info relative to other, nearby lines or with more on the Winwick line, send it/them to me (Dave) at email@example.com
