3 x 92s, a 59 and a DMU

Todays post, 23rd September 2011, comprises five pics covering four different locomotives and an old DMU.


First up are pics of class 92 locomotives; pic number one is from Jeff Nicholls. Depicted is a pair of DBS red liveried locos 92042 and 92016. The location was Arpley Yard and the date, 13th September 2011.



The second pic featuring a class 92 is from Alan Rigby. EWS (DBS) loco 92003, Beethoven, is shown on the afternoon Mossend - Hams Hall intermodal working, through Winwick on 14th September 2011.


Pic number three is a second from Jeff Nicholls. Photographed in portrait or vertical format it features EWS (DBS) class 59, 59204 Vale of Glamorgan heading a loaded coal train, working towards Arpley. Bottom right is the ground signal informing the driver which route he is set for; in this case, 'US'. The pic is dated 21st September 2011.



The fourth shot, from David Wood, is another of 59204, as in pic number three, above. In this pic the loco is heading a loaded coal working for Fiddlers Ferry Power Station through Earlestown Station on 15th September 2011.

Bob McClellan has sent in shot number five. The Test Train, Iris II, a converted class 101 DMU from 1991, was known as BR class 960, Lab 19-Iris II. The latter was displayed on the unit's destination board, as in Bob's picture. She acquired several liveries during her service; Railtrack blue and lime green livery is shown in Bob's pic of 13th June 2003. In 2004 she was repainted in Network Rail yellow  and re-classified as class 901. She was finally retired in 2007 and is now preserved.
