Along Other Lines (10) - Golborne and Arpley


John Smith and Ken Young, two of our established contributors, feature in this post.

John has sent in a pic of BR 'Standard' class 'Pacific' 70013, Oliver Cromwell, heading the 'Cumbrian Mountain Express' taken just outside Golborne on Friday 19th March 2010. The Leicester - Carlisle 'Special' ran through Winwick a minute or so later. The headboard is a bit strange - 'The Roaring Monster' - does anyone know the derivation of this name or headboard?

The pic from Ken Young shows First ScotRail class 90, 90019, leaving Arpley Yard working empty bogie bolster wagons. This pic was taken in February 2010.

Finally I am adding another face. Glenn Oakley has cont ributed to previous posts - another popular enthusiast seen regularly at Winwick. He is keenly interested in aeroplanes as well as trains, is a fine singer and a keen Swinton Rugby League supporter.
