A Mixed Bag

Todays post, 26th October 2011,  comprises a 'pot pourri' of shots from three contributors. Passing trains are shown in two pics, MPVs in another and a 'tug' in a fourth.




The 'tug' is featured first, EWS (DBS) class 60, 60010, in a shot from Jeff Nicholls. The loco is seen emerging from beneath Bank Quay Station on a loaded Liverpool Bulk Terminal - Fiddlers Ferry Power Station coal working.




Pic two is from John Smith. MPVs D98919 and D98169 are depicted on a RHTT (Rail Head Treatment Train) at Earlestown on 12th October 2011. They appear to be on a leaf mulch spraying working, or something similar.



The next two pics are from yours truly and both feature passing trains. The first, pic number three, shows Virgin 'Super Voyager' 221103 travelling southbound at Winwick, on 9th September 2011. On the slow line to the left, a consist of three EWS (DBS) class 66s is held at the lights. The nearest loco is 66040.





Pic number four features a shot from 23rd March 2010, taken in atrocious weather conditions. DRS class 57, 57002, is shown on an empty logs working northbound through Winwick. To the left is a Northern Rail class 142 'Pacer', 142057 on a local working out of Bank Quay. I've included this pic just to show that even though the weather lets you down (iso400-1600), you can still get a reasonable shot.
