More coal workings

If it wasn't for coal workings, we would be hard-pressed to photograph anything at Winwick at the present time - resident robin excepted, of course.  What is quite astonishing is Network Rail's claim that the WCML is almost at capacity. Surely, things must get better soon.

Today's pics (23rd January 2011) are all due to 'King Coal'. OK, so we have had several pics of 'Tug' 99  recently. Well here are two more but they are interesting because they show the same train in different locations; judge for yourself which is better. Pic number one, from Geoff Monks, shows TATA steel liveried 60099 at Sankey Bridges with empty coal hoppers from Fiddlers Ferry PS destined for the Liverpool Bulk Terminal. Geoff photographed the train from the public foot crossing.


Ken Young's shot of the same train was taken as it was leaving FFPS, before it arrived at Geoff's location. Both shots were taken on 19th January 2011.






The third pic in this post is from Jeff Nicholls. Unusually, but very effectively, taken in the portrait format, Freightliner class 66, 66548, is depicted leaving Bank Quay with a coal working on  16th November 2010.
