China Clay

One of the more interesting workings through Winwick these days is the china clay train that runs on Wednesday mornings. The working is Antwerp - Dollands Moor - Irvine, servicing the Caledonian Paper Mill in the Scottish town. The photographic attraction is the unique ICA wagons used to transport the clay, known affecctionately as 'silver bullets'. However, they are rarely clean, more often dirty brown than silver. This post (25th September 2010) features three pics covering the china clay working, from three different contributors.



The first shot is from Geoff Monks. EWS (DBS) class 92, 92042 Honegger, is pictured at Froghall Lane, near Warrington Bank Quay, heading the tank wagons on 25th August 2010.







Pic number two features EWS (DBS) class 92, 92005 Mozart, travelling north from the Winwick Quay direction, on 22nd September 2010. The pic is by John Smith.





The final pic is from yours truly, taken on 21st October 2009. The locomotive is one of the two class 92s (the other is 92001 Victor Hugo), that retain the old EWS livery - 92031, The Institute of Logistics and Transport. The working was northbound, through Winwick.
