Geoff Monks has sent in pic number two featuring the same locomotive. This was shot as the coal working approached Bank Quay on 11th October 2010.
Spot the difference between the two pics of 60013? Look at the nameplates. Anyone with any info' let me know. (*see below) The next four pics all show the Load Haul liveried (dark grey/orange) class 60, 60059 Swinden Dalesman, taken at different locations. Pic three is from Bob McClellan and depicts the coal working at Winwick on 12th October 2010.
The fourth pic is from Andy Appleton. 60059 is heading the coal train on the low level line at Arpley Juntion (by Bank Quay) in Andy's pic - it was taken on 11th October 2010.The fifth pic is from Geoff Monks again. In this shot 60059 is approaching the Mersey Bridge at Latchford; note the semaphore signal. The pic is dated 11th October 2010.
Can we please put this 'Tug/coal working' to bed now, for a few days, at least.
* Info just in from Bob McClellan (15th) - "The nameplates on this 'Tug' have had different coloured backgrounds for years. I have shots of it in 2005. It is one of the 'special' features of this locomotive, together with having nameplates at all and holding on to two of them". Many thanks Bob.
