Wow! What a response I have had in the past two days for this latest 'Alternatives' theme. As a result I must use eight pics from eight workers again in today's post, 3rd December 2011. Keep them coming in. Text down to a minimum though.
First up is a pic from Matthew Chambers. Double heading class 50s are pictured at Leeds on 19th November 2011. BR large logo pair 50004 St Vincent and 50049 Defiance are the two locos in Matthew's shot.
Second is Alan Rigby's shot of a Rail Head Treatment Train at Thorne Crossing on 5th October 2011. The working was Wrenthorpe - Grimsby and the two locos were 20905 on the front and 20901 on the rear. Alan says that the train only got as far as Scunthorpe, however, due to a brakes problem.
Jeff Nicholls has sent in pic number four. Class 56, 56106, is pictured at Doncaster with a freight working on 3rd January 1984.
John Smith has sent in another of his fine Foxfield Railway shots, this one from 15th October 2011.0-6-0 saddle tank Florence No.2 is shown on a freight working. John's use of the vertical format, aided by clouds of exhaust and a blue sky have worked together to provide a superb shot.
The sixth shot is from Paul Holland. Another 'Manor' class locomotive, No.7812 Erlestoke Manor, is pictured at Bridgenorth shed on 8th June 2011. In the background is Ivatt class 2, 2-6-2 No.46443.
Pic number seven of WCRC class 47, 47773, on a railtour at Lea Green, on 1st October 2011, is from Colin Irwin. Ex GWR 4-6-0, No.5043 Earl of Mount Edgcumbe, is on the rear.
The last pic in this post is from David Wood. Probably the first pic on the blog taken at Whiston, Freightliner 'PowerHaul' class 70, 70005, is shown light engine on 13th July 2011.
