We began our journey in January 2010 with just two posts, the first introductory post from myself and the second from Dave Harris. Now 139 posts later (141 in total) we have reached October and received over 10,000 hits - what a story. We must be doing something right. Three hundred and eighty three of your pics have been used so a huge thank you to everyone who has taken part - please continue to do so. Thank you also to enthusiasts from outside 'our patch' who view the blog - please carry on. Also, to Winwick enthusiasts who havn't contributed yet, please send something in to me and let others see your pics.The first pic for today (2nd October 2010) is from Bob McClellan. Looking almost new, a DRS class 66, 66406, is pictured on a container intermodal, southbound through Winwick, on 9th September 2004.
Pic number two is from John Smith. The popular gypsum working is shown northbound, on the slow line, through Winwick on 22nd September 2010. The locomotive is GBRf class 66, 66732, GBRf the first decade 1999-2009 John Smith MD.
An EWS (DBS) class 66 is featured next in a pic from Ken Young. Taken on the low level line near Bank Quay, 66067 is heading an empty 'cartic' working on 12th August 2010.
To complete this post, comprising all class 66s, is a shot from Jeff Nicholls taken on 22nd September 2010. The short, EWS coal hopper train (empty) was headed by EWS (DBS) class 66, 66122. Jeff adds that the working was probably an Arpley - Horbury Wagon Works trip for wagon overhaul.
