Seven Different Classes

9th September 2011 is the first time I am using, in a single post, seven different pics from six contributors showing seven different classes; just to prove we get more than 'sheds' (class 66s) through Winwick.

In numerical order of class numbers, the first pic shows two class 33s, from John Smith. The working was Sandbach - Sellafield loaded acid tanks and the date, 2nd April 2004. The loco at the head is DRS 'minimodal' branded class 33, 33030 and the loco on the tail is DRS class 33, 33025. The location was Winwick Junction.

The second pic is of a class 37 from Bob McClellan. EWS class 37, 37707, is shown at Winwick on 13th June 2003 heading wagons for repair, on an Arpley - Allerton working.

Next is a class 47. This pic is from Jeff Nicholls showing BR blue liveried (small logo) class 47, 47270 Swift, heading three empty stock coaches, including two Pullmans. The working was Carnforth - Tyseley and the date, 19th August 2011. This loco is privately owned and stabled on the Nene Valley Railway since 2007.

The third pic, from John Smith, features a class 59. John took the pic of EWS (DBS) class 59, 59205 L Keith McNair, at Winwick Junction on 22nd August 2011. The working was Liverpool Bulk Terminal (LBT) - Fiddlers Ferry Power Station (FFPS) loaded coal.

A class 60 is next, taken by David Wood at Winwick on 9th June 2011. Another coal working, the loco is EWS (DBS) class 60, 60040 The Territorial Army Centenary, and the bridge is our Old Alder Lane Bridge.

Next up is the ubiquitous class 66. Geoff Monks has sent in the shot taken at the approach to Arpley Grid Iron South Junction (between the Latchford and Walton run-rounds). The loco was Freightliner class 66, 66524 and the working, FFPS - Killoch empty coal hoppers.

The sixth and final shot features a class 70 pic from myself. The engineers ballast train was headed by Freightliner 'PowerHaul' class 70, 70011, through Winwick on 14th January 2011.

We have another blog centurian - Geoff Monks. Congratulations to Geoff on becoming the third contributor to have posted 100 photographs. John Smith and Jeff Nicholls were the previous blog centurians.
