Two 'Belles' and Five Flasks

This post June 2nd 2011 comprises 5 pics from 4 workers showing eight locos and a stone blower.



Pic number one is from Ken Young. The 'Northern Belle' Pullman railtour is depicted crossing the Mersey Bridge heading its luxury rake - another loco, although hidden and probably a second DRS class 47, is on the tail. The pic is dated 15th April 2011.




I featured a John Smith pic of a 'Northern Belle' empty stock move in the 28th May post and here is a pic, number two, showing the main loco in close up - DRS class 47, 47790 Northern Belle, in the 'Belle's' new livery. Location was Winwick.





Pic number three is another from Ken Young. Treble heading DRS class 37s, 37607, 37602 and 37603, are shown heading a single spent nuclear fuel flask through Bank Quay on 20th April 2011.





The fourth pic is from Jeff Nicholls. Another flasks working is featured with 4 flasks (making five altogether in this post) being hauled by two DRS class 20s, 20309 and 20303. The location was Winwick, the date, 31st May 2011.
