The first pic is from Ken Young and features a class 37, 37xxx, starting up and throwing out a fog of 'clag' - a railwayman is climbing into the cab (or is he leaving it?).
Alan Rigby took the second pic on 6th March 2008. EWS class 60, 60094, is shown heading loaded coal hoppers on the loop line past the yard, a favourite location for photographers.
Ken Young also took the third pic in this post - GBRf class 66, 66701 Whitemoor, passes Arpley with a loaded gypsum train. Both of Ken's pics have no dates but they were definitely taken towards the end of May, 2010.
