Another new contributor

Following on from Bill Harrison joining our blog contributors in December (28th) I am pleased to welcome another new face, and a young one at that. Daniel Irwin finished his A-levels in summer and then proceeded to take railway pics at Winwick. A native of Warrington, Daniel is currently studying law at the University of Hull - buses are another photographic interest. One of Daniel's pics is featured in this post (6th January 2011) and there will be more to come. Geoff Monks, Bill Harrison and John Smith are also represented, with a pic from each.


Daniel's shot is of Deltic class 55, 55022 Royal Scots Grey travelling light engine through Bank Quay on 24th August 2010. The working was Bury - Crewe.






A class 56, 56108, in BR large logo livery,  is shown in Bill's pic, taken at Winwick on 23rd May 1992.  






The third pic, from Geoff Monks, features a northbound Pendolino in the snow at Bank Quay on 18th December 2010. The coupling gate is open and Geoff thinks that it may have frozen in this position due to the sub zero temperatures. 





John Smith has sent in the final pic in this post, depicting a 'skip' on a Royal Mail drag. The locomotive is EWS (DBS) class 67, 67030, and the units are the standard, Royal Mail class 325 emus. The pic is dated 17th December 2010.
