Steam, Diesel and Electric locos

'The Duke', one of R. A. Riddles finest creations, features once again in today's post (4th December 2010) along with a couple of more modern locos. We have three pics from three contributors, one of them a newcomer to our blog.
The first pic is from newcomer Barry Rigby. His shot depicts BR 'Standard' class 8P, No. 71000 Duke of Gloucester, passing through Winwick with a support coach on 25th October 2010. Barry describes his day trip to Winwick as follows "a Boltoner, on a day out". You're very welcome to our blog Barry. 'The Duke' was built at Crewe in 1954 but lasted only eight years before withdrawal. 'The 71000 Steam Locomotive Trust' operates the giant 4-6-2 from its home base at the East Lancashire Railway.

Pic number two is from regular contributor Jeff Nicholls. Featured is EWS (DBS) class 66, 66200 heading coal hoppers past Arpley Yard. The working was Liverpool Docks - Fiddlers Ferry P.S. and the date, 23rd November 2010.
The third and final pic in this post is from another regular contributor, Andy Appleton. EWS class 90, 90028, is pictured powering through Winwick with a rake of Virgin passenger stock on a Euston - Preston working. The date was 25th May 2007.
