Another ten out of ten for today's post, 28th December 2011; ten pics from ten contributors.
First up is one of John Smith's industrials, taken at the Chasewater Railway on 19th March 2011. The little 0-4-0ST No.3 Colin McAndrew & Co is the loco heading a photographer's freight working.
Next, pic number two, has been sent in by David Quayle. The Severn Valley Railway at Bridgenorth is the location and, No.5164 and No.7802, the locos. The former is a 2-6-2 Prairie tank and the latter a 'Manor' class 4-6-0, Bradley Manor.
Ken Young has sent in pic number three, of Stanier 4-6-2, No.6201 Princess Elizabeth, taken at Crewe on 12th November 2011. 'The Coronation Scot' ran Tyseley - Crewe - Carlisle - Glasgow Central and returned on the following day.
Corfe Castle (unfortunately covered in tarpaulin sheet) is the location for pic number four, from Paul Holland. Ex London & South West Railway 0-4-4T locomotive No. 30053, is shown at the famous station on the Swanage Railway; the pic is dated 1st September 2007.
My own pic, number five, was taken at Carlisle on 1st August 2011. I had travelled on the train from St Helens on 'The Mersey Moorlander' which ran diesel hauled, Crewe - Liverpool- Preston, with class 47, 47580 County of Essex at the head. The Preston - Carlisle leg was headed by Stanier 'Black 5', No. 54305 with 47580 on the tail. The return legs were handled by the same locomotives.
Another class 47 is shown next in Jeff Nicholls' scanned pic, number six, taken in Crewe Works on 28th April 1985. The loco, 47716, is shown in grey primer prior to receiving its full livery.
Pics seven and eight both show the class '8F' locomotive No.48151 Gauge O Guild. Pic seven is from Bob McClellan. The loco is shown at a picturesque Ais Gill on 31st August 2011 heading 'The Fellsman' which ran Lancaster - Carlise and return via the Settle & Carlise line.
Shot number eight is of the same loco but heading the 'Welsh Mountaineer' near Frodsham on 23rd August 2011. This pic is from David Wood.
The ninth shot has been sent in by Matthew Chambers. Another of his excellent Doncaster shots taken on the same day, 23rd August 2011, this shows double heading EWS (DBS) class 66s - 66077 and 66021 - passing through the Yorkshire station with an intermodal working.
The final shot, number ten, is from Colin Platt. Taken on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway at Grosmont, on 18th September 2011, the pic features three locomotives. Class 24, D5061 stands to the left as two, BR blue class 20s, await the off. These are 20096 and 20197.
