'Silver Bullets'

For this first June post (3rd June 2010) I am adding pics from three regulars, Alan Rigby, Jeff Nicholls and David Wood.

Alan's pic shows EWS class 37, 37422 Cardiff Canton heading a mixed freight working comprising china clay tanks at the head of cargo vans. The china clay tanks are affectionately known as 'silver bullets' to railway enthusiasts. The pic was taken on 16th July 2008.

The pic from Jeff shows EWS (DBS) class 66, 66103, working a northbound freight (acid tanks?) train on the down slow line. It is common to see dmu's on this line travelling north but not so for a freight train. The pic was taken on 7th May 2010.

The third pic, from David, features a Freightliner class 66, 66511, heading coal hoppers, southbound, on 26th May 2010.

Tomorrow's post will feature our first night shot on the blog.... don't miss it. And don't miss the 'Black Duchess' (Crewe - Blackpool - Derby) through Winwick again on Saturday - check for times in the UK steam info link at the right hand side of the blog.
