Several devotees gathered at Winwick yesterday (February 5th) to photograph the new class 70, 70004, heading an engineers train southbound at 13.34hrs. Freightliner class 66, 66603, was banking. Anyone with a pic for the blog? Both locos were in excellent condition. The same train had passed northbound during the morning.
The morning before the new A1 Tornado plus support coach had passed through on the way to Preston to pick up HRH Prince Charles and bring him south to Manchester. Anyone with a pic at Winwick?
The pic I've posted is of a class 7P, 46250, City of Lichfield taken at Winwick Quay sometime before electrification of the line. The photographer was A. Chester but the print was forwarded by Ken Young at the gathering on February 5th. Any more historical info/pics etc. my email address is email@example.com
