Class 70 on a Pathfinder Tour

Four more pics are included in this post (23rd April 2010), all from previous contributors.

The first pic is a video 'still' from Neil Ebsworth. Neil videoed the Pathfinder Tour of 17th April 2010 involving the use of a class 70 locomotive for the first time on such a charter. Freightliner class 70, 70003 was double-headed with EWS (DBS) class 66, 66154 on the Swindon - Crewe - Carnforth - Leeds, 'Yorkshire Dalesman'. Neil's videos are excellent and can be seen on YouTube under 'neil 87008'.

The second pic is from Andy Appleton and features double-heading DRS class 20s, 20305 and 20301 working refurbished DRS coaching stock, Oxley-Carlisle, on 5th July 2007.


Bulleid 'West Country/Battle of Britain' class 'Pacific', 34067 Tangmere, complete with support coach, is the subject of Alan Rigby's shot taken on 12th December 2007.
The final pic is from Geoff Monks. Geoff photographed EWS (DBS) class 59, 59201 Vale of York, (unfortunately running in reverse, obscuring the front-end bell) working empty coal hoppers from Fiddlers Ferry Power Station to Liverpool Bulk Terminal.
