The Duchess and The Marquess

Today's post, 31st October 2014, comprises sixteen pics from six contributors and includes shots from a recent steam Gala.


First up are five shots from David Quayle's recent visit to the ELR Gala. The first shows two preserved Gresley, 'A4' class 'Streaks' -  60009 Union of South Africa (left) and 60007 Sir Nigel Gresley (right). The pic is dated 18th October 2014 and was taken at Bury Baron Street.

Next is David's shot of Hughes/Fowler 2-6-0 'Crab', No.13065 (42765), under the bridge at Bury on 19th October 2014.

David's third shot features the same locomotive, light engine, at Bury on 18th October 2014.

David's next shot is of the Gresley 'K4' class 2-6-0, No.61994 The Great Marquess, with a passenger service, at Bury on 19th October 2014.

Finally, this shot by David features the same locomotive on a goods working at Irwell Vale on 18th October 2014.

David Wood has sent in the following four pics three of them taken on Anglesey. First up is is a Network Rail Treatment Train headed by class 97, 97304 John Tiley, taken at Llanfair on 25th October 2014.

This next shot shows the same working but in reverse. On the tail is class 97, 97302. The date is the same, 25th October 2014.

David's third pic was also taken at Llanfair and shows DRS class 37s, 37682 and 37419 Carl Haviland 1954-2012, heading the 'Welsh Warrior' Special on 25th October 2014.

The final shot from David was taken at Winwick on 20th October 2014. Pictured is Gresley 'A4' class 4-6-2 No.60009 Union of South Africa on a ELR-Southall working with support coach. 

The two pics above are from Ieuan Wood. Pictured left is the 'Welsh Warrior' Special again as detailed above, but taken at Flint. Next from Ieuan is a a second shot (right) of No.61994 The Great Marquess - details above. This one was taken at Burrs on the ELR on 18th October 2014.

Jeff Nicholls has sent in the next three pics. His first was taken at Red Bank on 25th October 2014 and features the 'Appleby Explorer' Special headed by Stanier 'Princess Coronation' class 4-6-2 No.46233 Duchess of Sutherland.

Jeff's second shot was taken at Culcheth on 20th October 2014. Depicted is Gresley 'A4', No.60009 Union of South Africa with support coach, on an ELR - Southall working.

The same working, at the same location on the same day, is pictured next again from Jeff.

John Smith has sent in this one taken at Winwick on 20th October 2014. The same 'A4' loco and support, as above,  is shown again.

Finally a shot from myself of the 'Appleby Explorer' taken on 25th October 2014. I must have been on the other side of the track at Red Bank as Jeff Nicholls (see his shot above), but I didn't spot him. No.46233 Duchess of Sutherland at the head, in lousy light.
