Before I begin this post, I hope that you noticed the late change in the previous post. I swapped a pic of Ken Young's (pic number four) for another of his. I had used the first one in a previous post and didn't realise it until this morning. Today's post 30th September 2011 features pics from five different contributors and, once again, reflects the superb support that we get from our Winwick enthusiasts.
The first shot is from Jeff Nicholls. Pictured is EWS (DBS) class 66, 66161, on a car transporter working crossing the Mersey towards Arpley.The date was 27th September 2011.
Next up is a shot from John Smith. I am receiving many pics of Arriva Trains' liveried class 67, 67003, at the present time, as it appears to be hanging around our patch for a while on driver training exercises.This one shows the loco at Red Bank hauling two empty container flats for repair Arpley - Wigan. The date was 28th September 2011.
David Wood has sent in the next pic, number three. EWS (DBS) Class 92, 92041 Vaughan Williams, is shown on the china clay working through Red Bank, on 28th September 2011.
I have sent in pic number four, taken at Winwick on 23rd September 2011. EWS (DBS) class 67, 67002, is pictured heading a UK Railtours 'Special'. This was photographed on the first day of the railtour 'The West Highlander' speeding from Crewe to Penrith, on its way to Scotland.
The final pic, number five, is from Ken Young. I have put together a montage of two of his pics to show GBRf class 66, 66725 Sunderland, on a gypsum working, in more detail. The location was the low level line under Bank Quay and the date, 29th March 2011.
