Four + Two
In today's post, 21st september 2011, I am using five pics from different photographers showing three locomotive classes - four class 70s, a class 66 and a class 60.
Shot number one is from Jeff Nicholls. This is a vertical shot which few contributors try, but which can have more impact in the right circumstances. Freightliner 'PowerHaul' class 70, 70010, is pictured at Littons Mill Crossing with a Fiddlers Ferry Power Station (FFPS) - Ellesmere Port working. The train comprised empty coal hoppers and the date was 13th September 2011.
Next up is a pic from Alan Rigby. Freightliner 'PowerHaul' class 70, 70002, is shown heading coal empties on a Basford Hall - Liverpool Bulk Terminal (LBT) working, to return loaded coal from LBT to Ratcliffe Power Station. The pic is dated 14th September 2011.
David Wood has sent in pic number three. Another Freightliner 'PowerHaul' class 70 is depicted, 70005, working empty coal hoppers from FFPS through Red Bank, on 15th September 2011.
Pic number four features a locomotive from the same class but double headed with a class 66. 70002 and 66522 (Freightliner/Shanks livery) are depicted on a Carlisle - Mountsorrel engineers' (empty ballast) working, approaching the River Mersey near Arpley. The pic, from John Smith, is dated 9th August 2011.
The final pic is from Bob McClellan. EWS class 60, 60016 Rail Magazine, is shown (before its renumbering to 60500) heading blue aggregate hoppers on the approach to Winwick Junction. The date was 17th July 2003.
