For today's post (17th October 2010) I have chosen four pics, taken at or close to Bank Quay, from two contributors. They include a first for our blog - a rather picturesque sunset with a semaphore signal as a focal point.
I will begin with Chris Sutcliffe's magical sunset shot which he titles 'Semaphore Sunset'. The signal in question is the Arpley signal and the background is the Unilever plant. The date was 5th October 2010.
Another shot from Chris is shown next. Taken at Bank Quay on the same date, 5th October 2010, class 221, 221115 Polmadie Depot displays the Virgin - Bombardier joint branding (see earlier post, 3rd September, for more details). The nameplate - "marking the completion of a multi-million pound upgrade to the facilty carried out by Bombardier Transportation" - is shown inset by Chris.
The final two pics are both from Andy Appleton. They were taken at Bank Quay on 11th October 2010. Sandwiched between two DRS class 37s, 37218 and 37069, is the overhead wire measurment coach 'Mentor'. The two pics show the consist from both ends.
I must admit, we have had some superb weather this October, conducive of course, to excellent photography. Let's hope both continue.
