This final September post (30th) is meant to stir the memory banks once again. Three contributors have each sent in a pic, taken in the 1980's - scanned from slides/prints with corresponding quality.
The first is from Jeff Nicholls. The old Thames Board Works in Warrington acts as a backdrop as class 56, 56085 ambles by. The pic is dated 25th August 1982.
Pic two, taken in 1987, is from Dave Harris. A class 47, heading possibly a Blackpool - Euston passenger working, is pictured at Winwick Junction. Can you name the classic 80's cars at the popular photographers spot by the level crossing gate?
The final shot is from the old picture album of Ken Saunders. A class 56, 56025, is shown heading a coal working, by a busy Arpley Yard. The pic is dated 3rd September 1985.
I have more 'golden oldies' to show you in the near future thanks to several enthusiasts who have sent in older material. If you have any pics or scans from old pics/slides, originally photographed on 'our patch', please send them in by email (scans) or hand them to me at Winwick (pics).
