The first two pics are from Jeff Nicholls who has taken advantage of 'Lake Winwick' on several occasions lately. The result, some good reflections shots. The first is of Freightliner class 66, 66612 Forth Raider, heading a concrete sleepers, engineering train at Winwick on 20th February 2011. This is another of the workings in connection with the current engineering modifications on Winwick lines.
Jeff's second shot shows Northern Rail class 142, 142033, heading northwards from Bank Quay, on 24th February 2011. At the present time 'Nodding Donkies' are common diesel multiple units on the Winwick line along with class 150s and 156s. Class 158s are occasionally seen.
Featured next and last is another mail drag shot of John Smith, photographed in good light and picturesque snow. The pic is dated 22nd December 2010. At the head of the Royal Mail, class 325 emus is EWS (DBS) class 67, 67005 Queens Messenger. The class 325s are popular with photographers when being dragged in bad weather. The latter is known to affect their reliability.
