Today's post, 20th March 2011, is a real mixed bag of pics featuring a steam loco, a special DMU and a 'tug'.
Pic number one is from Jeff Nicholls. 'Black Five' 4-6-0 No.44932 passed through Winwick, northbound, on 16th March 2011. It was complete with its support coach and was 'chased' by a class 175 DMU which can be seen in the picture.
Bob McClellan has sent in pic number two. Originally a class 101 DMU, No.901002 was converted in 1991 into a BR test train known as Lab 19 - Iris II. It was sold by Network Rail in 2008 to a private buyer and can now be seen on the West Somerset Railway. The pic is dated 20th April 2007 and the location is Winwick.
