Three 'Sparks' and a 56

Todays post, 6th Spetember 2011, features four pics from two photographers, Bob McClellan and Geoff Monks; three electric locos and a class 56 are pictured.


Bob hasn't sent anything in for a while so it's great to see him back. His first shot is of the DBS red liveried class 92, 92016, on the 'Tesco Express'.  The working was northbound, through Red Bank, on 3rd September 2011.





The next two shots are both from Geoff. His first, pic number two, shows EWS class 90, 90028, on a northbound Christmas Mail extra service, through Winwick, on  13th December 2007.




Geoff's second shot, pic number three, shows Freightliner class 86, 86605, heading a short-lived afternoon container train, southbound, through Winwick. The pic is dated 5th October 2007.





The final shot in this post is another from Bob. This one features class 56, 56133, at Dollys Bridge, Winwick Lane, Lowton on 12th May 2003. The working was Knowsley - Immingham empty cargo vans.





I have received a request from Christian Branch for any information/pics about the WCML through Winwick in the 1980's. He wants to build a model of the line in the near future. If you can help Christian please get in touch with him - his email address is branchie@talk21.com I am sure that some of you may be able to help him, so please email him.
