Pic number one is from John Smith. Recently named GBRf (Eurotunnel) class 66, 66716, is pictured on an engineers working, southbound at Winwick, on 21st July 2011.

The fourth and final shot is from Colin Platt. Featured is Freightliner class 66, 66511, at Red bank heading a coal working (do we get much else these days?) on 12th May 2011.
NOTE : I am beginning to run short of Winwick area pics. Some contributors havn't sent anything in for quite a while, so please do so or run the risk of the blog being supported by a few photographers only.
