Today's post, 7th August 2011, features five pics from four different photographers.
The first is from Ken Young. Freightliner class 66, 66506, is pictured on an engineers working over the Mersey Bridge, a favourite location of Ken's. The pic is dated 15th April 2011.
The second pic is from Jeff Nicholls. GBRf class 66, 66735 (ex 66403), is shown at 12 Arches heading a gypsum working on 26th July 2011. The loco is on hire from Porterbrook Leasing. Note that some previous branding (DRS?) has been painted out.
Next up is a shot from David Wood. EWS (DBS) class 92, 92041 Vaughan Williams, is depicted on a container intermodal working, southbound, through Winwick on 13th July 2011.
The final two shots are both from Geoff Monks. The first features the popular logs working, Carlisle - Chirk, southbound through Winwick. At the head is Colas Rail class 66, 66850 (ex 66577); note the change in branding from earlier locos in this series. This pic is dated 5th August 2011.
Geoff's second shot signals a change in emphasis, to steam. Stanier class 8F 2-8-0, No.48151 Gauge O Guild, is shown on a Yeovil Junction - Carnforth working northbound, at Winwick, on 10th July 2011.
