This post (27th January 2011) is dedicated to Freightliner class 70 locomotives. Rather dismissively called 'Ugly Bettys' or 'Upturned Jelly Moulds' by some detractors, these locomotives also have many supporters; they are certainly popular as photographic subjects. The three pics in today's post are from two contributors, Ken Young and Jeff Nicholls. Once again we rely on coal traffic for our blog pics - what would we do without it at the present time.
Pics one and two are both from Ken Young. They feature two class 70s, taken on coal duties on the same day, 14th January 2011. The first shows 70006 on a coal working near Fiddlers Ferry Power Station. The second depicts 70011 on similar duty approaching Bank Quay Station. Pic one was timed at 13.07 hrs and pic two, at 11.39hrs.
