This post (25th January 2011) features four pics, covering the nineteen year period, 1992 - 2011. Four different contributors are represented with classes 08, 31 and 66/7.
Diesel shunters are not the most photogenic of railway subjects but they are distinctive and deserve a place on our blog. The first pic is one of Ken Young's copy photos, the original being dated 2004. Pictured is class 08, 08802 (seems to be named Sir -------) in Arpley Yard.Can anyone email me with the name and livery details please?
The second pic was also taken in Arpley, on 28th June 2006, by Jeff Nicholls. Grey liveried Class 08, 08460, is depicted with other shunters and several class 66s, including 66072. Most locos are in EWS livery. How many can you spot?
Pic number three is from Bill Harrison. Class 31, 31257, is pictured at Howley (Warrington) with the bus station prominent in the composition. Both locomotive and bus enthusiasts will be interested in this pic, which is dated 23rd May 1992.
The final shot is from Geoff Monks. GBRf liveried class 66, 66706 Nene Valley, is pictured at Sankey Bridges with the Fiddlers Ferry PS - Newbiggin gypsum working, on 19th January 2011.
Edit : 25th January 2011. I knew someone would know the livery on 08802 above. Bob McClellan advises me that it is old Rail Express livery. The loco name, however, is unofficial. Cheers Bob.
