Six Locomotive Classes

Today's post, 28th August 2011,  comprises six pics from six contributors involving six different loco classes and several different locations around 'our patch'.


The first two pics are from Dave Harris. First up are DRS class 47s 47818 and 47790 Galloway Princess (in Northern Belle livery) on the 'Northern Belle' Edinburgh - Euston working, through Red Bank, on 22nd August 2011.






Dave's second pic is of the blue class 86, 86259 Les Ross, with the Euston - Carlisle working on 25th August 2011. The location was Golborne.





The third pic is from Geoff Monks. Featured is EWS (DBS) class 66, 66019, on a Fiddlers Ferry Power Station - Liverpool Bulk Terminal empty coal working on 25th August 2011. The location was the low level line at Bank Quay.





Shot number four has been sent in by John Smith. Freightliner 'PowerHaul' class 70, 70010, is shown heading a coal train on a Liverpool - Ironbridge working, The location was Earlestown and the date, 19th August 2011.


Jeff Nicholls has supplied shot number five. An EWS (DBS) class 67, 67002 Special Delivery, is pictured heading a Network Rail Test Train near Arpley on 21st June 2011.




The final pic from Alan Rigby really is a 'stitch up'. Two pics are presented, stitched together, to show both ends of a long train. The working was an empty stock move, Derby - Carnforth, with WCRC locos 57601 on the front and 47804 at the rear. The location was Winwick and the working was northbound. This 'stitching' could have been done with several pics sent in recently but I thought that more than one would have been 'OTT'.
