Three contributors today, 24th July 2010 - Alan Rigby, David Wood and Ken Saunders.
The first pic from Alan Rigby features a Mainline Freight 'aircraft blue' liveried class 60, 60044, at Bank Quay Station on 16th January 2008. The EWS vinyl branding hides the 'rolling wheels' logo of the Mainline company. Formed in 1994, Mainline Freight was taken over by Wisconsin Central in 1996, along with the Rail-Freight and Load-Haul companies. EWS was the name adopted for the amalgamation.
David Wood's pic is a recent one of the Freightliner/Shanks liveried class 66, 66522, on coal hopper duty through Winwick on 21st July 2010.
The third pic from Ken
Saunders is another from his 1980's photo album. A class 56, 56073 is shown hauling HAA coal hoppers off Winwick Junction. The pic is dated 5th August 1985.
