In this post Glenn Oakley and Bevan Price have provided pics taken in close proximity to the line through Winwick. Glenn's pic is an ultra close up of 'Standard' class 7, 70013 Oliver Cromwell, taken just south of Golborne on 19th March 2010. This was the 'Special' carrying the headboard 'The Roaring Monster'. In the 25th March post I requested info regarding this headboard and CJ has left a super explanation, subsequently, in the comments section at the foot of the same post. Please read it. Many thanks CJ.
Bevan's shot is of class 57, 57307, carrying out an unusual duty on 16th September 2007. It is heading a class 390 Pendolino, 390.020, through Newton-le-Willows because of engineering work between Liverpool and Crewe. As a result the Liverpool - Euston service was being diverted through Manchester.
