47s and a 67

Two class 47s and a class 67 are pictured in today's post 19th October 2011. Four pics are published from three contributors.


The first two pics, from Dave Harris, are of the same working. Ex Advenza class 47, 47237 (now owned by WCRC), is shown on the rear of an Acton - Carnforth empty coaching stock move, on 16th October 2011. The location was Winwick.




The second pic is the same as above but given a 'retro' look by Dave. The monochrome pic suggests a 1960's decade as the class of 512 locomotives was introduced between 1962 and 1968. Dave has carefully removed the headlight and multicoupler for authenticity.




Pic number three is from Ken Young. Featured is another class 47, DRS liveried 47501 Craftsman, on the tail of the 'Northern Belle' railtour on 15th April 2011. The location is close to the Mersey bridge near Arpley.





The final pic, of a class 67 loco, is from David Wood. This working has been featured before but this shot was taken at Red Bank. The working was empty container flats for repair, Arpley - Wigan, and the date, 28th September 2011. The locomotive, 67003, is in Arriva livery ready for the Holyhead traffic.
