Four 'Tugs'

The class 60 locomotive is quite a rare sight these days at Winwick so, to remind us of what we may be missing, here (9th September 2010) are four pics from three of our group - Bob McClellan, Jeff Nicholls and Andy Appleton. Three pics were taken at Winwick, one at Bank Quay.

The first pic is from Bob. It depicts EWS class 60, 60025 Caledonian Paper, heading empty steel wagons to Immingham on 22nd June 2004.

Jeff Nicholls has supplied the second pic - EWS (DBS) class 60, 60096, is shown heading loaded coal hoppers, southbound, on 16th September 2009.

Andy's first pic is of EWS class 60, 60076 heading a single wagon (load?), southbound, on 17th March 2008.

His second pic shows EWS class 60, 60069 Slioch, at Warrington Bank Quay, heading blue coal hoppers, on 19th October 2006.

For the latest information on the class go to http://www.tugtracker.co.uk/ Seven, class 60 locomotives are operational currently, including 60096, above; seventy three are stored.
