60099 and 60010

The rumour mill is gathering pace today about DBS class 60's being refurbished into some sort of 'Super 60' class, numbering over twenty when completed. Let's hope so. It is fitting, therefore, that two 'tugs', on present coal duties in and out of Fiddlers Ferry Power Station (FFPS), are the subject of today's post (18th January 2011). 


The first two pics are from Geoff Monks. Pic number one shows the TATA steel liveried class 60, 60099, heading empty coal hoppers on a FFPS - Liverpool Bulk Terminal (LBT) working (or diagram?), at Slutchers Lane, Warrington.


The second shot from Geoff was taken on the same day, 17th January 2011. EWS (DBS) class 60, 60010, is featured on a LBT-FFPS loaded coal working, arriving at Bank Quay Station.


Both these locomotives, on similar duties, are pictured in shot number three from Jeff Nicholls. The passing trains were photographed at Winwick today, 18th January 2011. Jeff's description of 60099 reflected in 'Lake Winwick', seems appropriate at the present time.
