Today's post (22nd July 2010) once again features the black Duchess on the 'Royal Scot' railtour from 22nd May 2010. And don't forget, the iconic Stanier 'Pacific' takes in the Liverpool - Wigan line this Saturday with the 'Cumbrian Mountain Express' railtour (see UK steam info at the right hand side of the blog for times).
The picture of 6233, Duchess of Sutherland, is from Ken Young - it was taken at Red Bank. For more of this railtour just type 'Royal Scot' into the search bar at the top of the blog.
The class 59 pic was taken at Winwick, on 2nd March 2010, by John Smith. DBS liveried 59206, John F. Yeoman Rail Pioneer, was working coal hoppers on a Liverpool Docks - Fiddlers Ferry run.
The pic of double-heading class 37s is from Bob McClennan and is dated 7th June 2004. The DRS locos, 37259 and 37611 are working a Grangemouth - Daventry intermodal train.
