Alternative Photographs (3)

This is the third post (20th December 2010) where all guidelines have been forsaken and Winwick enthusiasts are showing alternative pics to those normally taken on 'our patch'.
Pic number one is from Bob McClellan. Featured is unit 143 entering Grindelwald (Switzerland) in real snow. Look at the back of the train to see the incline that it has just climbed. The pic was taken on 18th February 2006.
Pic two is from Jeff Nicholls. Two industrial workhorses are shown at Bickershaw Colliery on 13th February 1978. The 0-6-0 saddle tanks, spewing out more than a copious amount of exhaust, are Warrior and Bickershaw.
The third pic is another from foreign shores, this time by Bevan Price. "It was taken at Chartottenberg in Sweden in 1983 and features the following locos - NS 411 (left); BJ (ex-SJ) 106 and 76 (right). The train was LCGB special.
Alan Sherratt has sent in the fourth pic, showing a couple of 'tugs'. The two class 60s are at Northwich on fly ash deliveries to Oakley Sidings. EWS (DBS) class 60, 60020 is on a Healey Mills (via Warrington) working while EWS (DBS) 60021 languishes behind to depart later to the same destination. The pic is dated 20th May 2005.
The fifth and final pic in this post is from Andy Appleton. Featured is the Alstom vinyled Pendolino, 390 004, at Euston on 25th September 2010.
