Fourteen from GB; Two from Germany

In this post, 28th August 2013, I am using sixteen pics from seven contributors covering locos from England, Wales and Germany.

To the best of my knowledge few pics have been used on the blog of Scottish Railways /Heritage Railways. Surely someone must be in a position to send in some shots.
 
 
WINWICK
 
 
First up are two pics from a new contributor who has supported our competitions and has decided to have a go and place pics on our blog. You are very welcome Mark Tombs. EWS (DBS) class 66, 66114, is shown in pic number one waiting at Bank Quay with a freight working. The pic is dated 19th August 2013.
