I am being inundated with pics again at the moment (2 steam locomotives through Winwick / Bank Quay today 9th November 2010)) so here are four pics from four different contributors. The steam locos will be used in the next post. Keep sending in pics/info etc., - I can bank contributions for future use.
The first pic is from Chris Sutcliffe. EWS (DBS) class 59, 59203, is depicted passing the site of the former station at Sankey Bridges heading empty coal hoppers to Latchford, to run round. The train returned later heading back to Liverpool Bulk Terminal. The pic is dated 5th October 2010.
Pic number two is from Jeff Nicholls. In this shot Virgin liveried class 57, 57306 Jeff Tracy is pictured on the Twelve Arches bridge, across the Mersey, returning empty timber wagons from Chirk to Carlisle.
A triple heading, light-engine consist of three class 66s is shown next, passing southbound through Winwick on 18th October 2010 - the photographer was Bevan Price. The locos are EWS (DBS) class 66s 66115, 66056 and 66106. The locos had been scheduled for engineering train duties previously.Dave Harris has forwarded the final (scanned) pic in this post, a class 31 at Winwick Junction. The pic is dated 1986 and features 'Railfreight Red Stripe' liveried class 31, 31247 heading an infrastructure working (relaying ballast) at Winwick Junction. Note the two class 20s on the rear.
