Blue, Grey and Red Skies.

Here are the next fourteen shots for today's post, 26th August 2014, sent in by five contributors.


David Wood opens today with three shots - the first taken at Betwys -y -coed on 19th August 2014. The railtour was the 'Welsh Mountaineer' with Stanier class '8F' 2-8-0 No.48151 at the head.

David's second pic features WCRC class 37, 37518 Fort William/An Gearasdan at  Liverpool Lime Street 17th August 2014. The railtour was the 'North Wales Coast Express,' Liverpool - Holyhead.

Pic three from David shows the Gresley 'A4' class 4-6-2, No.60009 Union of South Africa,  this one taken at Llandudno Junction on 17th August 2014.

The following four pics are from Alan Rigby. The first shows GBRf class 66, 66702 Blue Lightning, at St Helens Junction on 21st August 2104.The working was LBT-Ironbridge.

A superb blue sky is next pictured at Toton in Alan's second shot taken on 4th August 2014; a line of stored class 60's can be seen in the foreground. The sky wins in this one, I think.

Alan's third shot was taken at Winwick on 21st August 2014. New class 68s of Chiltern Railways, 68010 and 68011, are shown double heading, light engine on a Carlisle - Crewe working.

Next, from Jeff, is a Stafford pic taken on 15th August 2014. DRS class 37s, 37667 and 37405, are pictured on a Toton - Crewe working.

Jeff's third shot is one that all the Winwick faithful will recognise - sunrise over 'our bridge' taken early on 22nd August 2014. Nice one Jeff, what a sky.....

Chiltern Railways class 68s are up again in this shot, Jeff's fourth. 68010 and 68011 are pictured on a test train through Winwick on 20th August 2014.
