Alternative Photographs (9)
For this final post of 2010, I am using six of the remaining pics that have been sent in under the current 'Alternative Photographs' theme. And of course I am taking the opportunity to wish all our contributors and viewers / readers, all around the world, a very happy and prosperous 2011.
Pic number one is from John Smith. LMS 'Princess Coronation' class 'Pacific' No. 6233 Duchess of Sutherland, in black livery, is shown at St Helens Central Station, heading a charter on 21st August 2010.
The second shot, depicting a picturesque scene on the south coast, is from Dave Harris. Mendip Rail, Hanson liveried class 59, 59103 Village of Mells, is shown heading empty stone hoppers across the River Hamble at Swanick Marina. The working was Chichester - Merehead and the date, August 2009. Which boat is yours then Dave?
