Two Contributors, Three Photos

Today's post (6th December 2010) comprises two pics from the 1990's from Alan Sherratt and another more recent shot from Geoff Monks.
Alan's first pic (a scan or copy) shows a black liveried class 90, 90132, on a Willesdon - Port Elphinstone (near Aberdeen) clay tanks working to Mossend, where a diesel took over. Alan adds "The livery was the same as the new InterCity colours making an appearance at the time but with no brandings for freight locomotives". The location was Winwick, the date, 17th August 1992.
The second shot (a scan or copy) from Alan features double heading DRS class 20s, 20302 and 20301 heading a rake of maroon passenger stock, interrupted by a light green coach in Pilkingtons Glass colours. The working was Wembley - Carnforth and the date, 22nd April 1997.
Geoff Monks has sent in the third and final pic. The afternoon Fiddlers Ferry P.S. - Newbiggin gypsum working is depicted with a severely weathered GBRf class 66, 66730, at the head. The date was 24th November 2010, and the location was Winwick (from Alder Lane Bridge).
