Test Train Class 67s

The weather has been superb for late spring/early summer this year and this is reflected in the number and quality of pics that are being sent in to me. However, for this post (6th June 2010), I am taking you back to 2006. Alan Rigby took many pics in that year and three are included today.


 

Alan's first pic is of EWS class 67, 67029, heading a Network Rail Test Train on 13th October 2006. Class 67, 67005 Queen's Messenger, is on the tail.






Pic number two features Cotswold Rail class 47, 47817 John Peel, heading passenger stock of, mainly, Virgin origin. The pic is dated 17th March 2006.






The final pic from Alan shows a class 158 dmu, 158842, taken on 29th April 2006; the advertising vinyls for 'The Western Mail' show up well along the side. This is the first pic of a dmu on our blog (I think) and few 158s are seen at Winwick these days.
