Three 'Tugs'

This post, 5th June 2011, comprises three pics of class 60 locomotives from three different photographers. The 100, class 60 locomotives were introduced onto BR metals between 1989 and 1993, built by Brush Traction of Loughborough. They were built initially for BR, but taken over by EWS (English, Welsh and Scottish Railway) in 1996, followed by D. B. Schenker in 2007.

First up is Ken Young's shot of EWS (DBS) class 60, 60049, on Fiddlers Ferry Power Station coal duty, through Winwick, on 8th April 2011.






The second pic is from Paul Holland. Featured is EWS (DBS) class 60, 60040 The Territorial Army Centenary, heading another coal working. The location is the low level line at Slutchers Lane and the date, 3rd June 2011.



Tug 85, MINI Pride of Oxford, is shown next in a shot by yours truly. This was a steel working, Arpley - Liverpool Steel Terminal, taken on 7th April 2010. The location was Winwick.




Note the similarity with the class 92 body shell, and that none of these 'tugs' are liveried in DBS colours.
