It couldn't have happened many times previously (does anyone know?) but a Gresley 'K4' class locomotive presented itself to the Winwick faithful on 6th April 2011. This post, 8th April 2011, comprises Alan Rigby's pic of the famous steam locomotive backed up by two others (diesel and electric) from Paul Holland and Bob McClellan.
Alan's pic shows the Gresley 'K4' class locomotive, 61994 The Great Marquess, with support coach passing northbound through Winwick, on a Crewe - Thornton (Scotland) working. The original 'K4' class comprised six locos, of 2-6-0 wheel configuration (Mogul); they were built from 1937 to operate on the West Highland Line in Scotland.
Paul's shot was taken today, 8th April 2011, and shows EWS (DBS) class 59, 59201 Vale of York, shunting in Arpley Yard.
A class 92 is the subject of Bob's shot, taken on 24th March 2011. EWS (DBS) class 92, 92001 Victor Hugo, (one of only two in this livery) is depicted on the popular blue/white, Tesco express intermodal, powering through Red Bank.
