Six Classes

Today's post (26th November 2010) comprises a mixed bag of loco classes, reflecting the range and number of pics 'in the bank' at the present time.
Pic number one is a copy of an old photograph - original pic and copy by Ken Young - showing class 33, 33108, class 31, 31454 and another unidentified class 31, treble-heading, light engine at Bank Quay in 2004 (specific date not known).
The second pic is from Geoff Monks. The popular gypsum working, Fiddlers Ferry - Newbiggin, is featured at Winwick on 16th November 2010. The locomotive is GBRf liveried class 66, 66707, Sir Sam Fay Great Central Railway.
The next pic is from Jeff Nicholls. A class 37 and a class 20 are featured on the Sellafield - Crewe nuclear flasks working. The locos are double-heading DRS class 37, 37229 Jonty Jarvis 8-12-1998 to 18-3-2005, and DRS class 20, 20303. The pic is dated 20th November 2010.
The fourth and final shot in this post is from Andy Appleton. Double-heading, light engine locomotives, class 66, 66419 and class 47, 47832 are depicted on a Loughborough - Carlisle working on 17th March 2008. The class 66 is in DRS livery and the 47, in Riviera Trains liveried.
If you are interested in steam locomotives and how they are portrayed in other hobbies, have a look at my other blog titled http://www.steamtrainjigsaw.blogspot.com/. Steam trains are a popular subject for thematic jigsaw collectors. I will link the jigsaw blog at the right hand side of this Winwick blog.
