Today's post, 14th July 2014, comprises ten pics from just three contributors.
WINWICK & ELSEWHERE
First up are four shots from Ieuan Wood. Gresley 'A4' No.60009 Union of South Africa is the subject of the first pic taken at Long Preston on 12 July 2014. The railtour was the 'Cumbrian Mountain Express'.
Ieuan's second shot was also taken at the same location and on the same date. Pictured is GBRf class 66, 66847 on the Carlisle-Chirk logs working.
Back to the Harry Potter theme again (see previous post) in this shot taken at Shipley on 12th July 2014. The railtour was the 'Wizard's Express' and the locomotive, No.5972 Olton Hall, masquerading as Hogwarts Castle.
Ieuan's final shot was taken at Winwick on 10th July 2014. Colas Rail class 70, 70802, is pictured dragging Colas Rail class 66, 666847 on the Carlisle - Chirk logs working. The class 70 was removed at Warrington Bank Quay and the working continued with the 66 at the head.
The same working, a loaded test run, is pictured next by Geoff Monks. Same place - Winwick, same date -10th July 2014.
