Four 'Sheds', one 'Tug' and a 'Streak'.

Today's post, 10th November 2011, comprises five pics showing six locomotives, described briefly in the post title. Five different photographers have sent in the pics.


First up is EWS (DBS) class 66, 66122, on the Friday morning Arpley - Marcroft (Stoke) wagons for repair. The pic is dated 28th October 2011, the photographer was Jeff Nicholls and the location was the Mersey crossing.





The second 'shed' has been sent in by David Wood. Freightliner class 66, 66603, is pictured northbound through Winwick on a coal working. The pic is dated 18th October 2011.





The third 'shed', pic number three, is of EWS (DBS) class 66, 66207, working empty flats towards Bank Quay on 2nd November 2011. The photographer was Ken Young.






Pic number four is another from Matthew Chambers. He has featured strongly in recent posts and will continue to do so. This is a night shot of a 'tug' taken at Bank Quay on 29th October 2010. Pictured is Load Haul liveried class 60, 60059 Swinden Dalesman, awaiting a driver change for a coal (?) working.


The final pic is from Colin Platt and features one of Gresley's finest, 'A4' class 4-6-2 No.60009 Union of South Africa, built in 1937. Privately owned by John Cameron, since 1966, the loco is currently under extensive overhaul at Crewe Heritage Centre. 60009 has worn BR 'Brunswick Green' for her preservation lifetime. A Springbok plaque, fixed to the left side of the locomotive, was donated by a Bloemfontein newspaper owner in 1954. The pic was taken at Bank Quay on 10th August 2008 as the 'North Wales Coast Express' was exiting the station. The fourth 'shed', EWS class 66, 66232, is shown standing beside the 'Streak'.
