20th and 21st Century Trains

The pics in today's post (24th August 2010) cover the 1960's and recent years. They were contributed by Jim Carter (via David Hey), Geoff Monks and Alan Rigby.

The first two pics are from Jim Carter and show steam trains on the Winwick line in the 1960's. The photograph legends are comprehensive and need no further introduction. 'Black 5', 'Britannia' and 'Princess Coronation' class locos are pictured. Left click on your mouse to enlarge each picture and read the legend.

Pic number three is from Geoff Monks. Depicted is EWS (DBS) class 92, 92031 The Institute of Logistics and Transport passing Bank Quay on a Rugby - Mossend working on 16th August 2010. 92001 Victor Hugo and 92031 are the only two of the class that retain old EWS livery.

Alan Rigby's pic is dated 28th April 2006. DRS class 47s, 47802 and 47298, are shown heading an empty intermodal working, northbound, through Winwwick as a 'Pendolino' flashes by on the southbound fast line.
