Along Other Lines (21) - Red Bank

For newer viewers or in case you have forgotten, 'Along Other Lines' features pics/info etc., that refer to lines in 'close proximity' to the Winwick lines.

The first two pics in today's post (29th May 2010) were taken moments apart as two trains passed one another. Photographer Ken Young took pic number one then turned his camera in the opposite direction to take pic number two as the second train was approaching him before the first one had cleared.


The first pic shows EWS (DBS) class 92, 92019 Wagner on a recent, morning container working, Stobart/Tesco (date not forwarded). Almost immediately Freightliner class 66, 66557 was photographed as the two trains passed each other. This locomotive was on heavy haul, coal duty.


The third pic in this post is from young Cory Wilcock and again features the southbound 'Royal Scot' railtour headed by Stanier 4-6-2 6233 Duchess of Sutherland. The locomotive is currently liveried in Ivatt lined black before her boiler ticket expires - a more familiar livery will be applied next year. Cory chose to take a close up of the locomotive as the rake of coaches behind was unfortunately of mixed liveries. The 'Special' was a Carlisle - Crewe working. Cory's pic was also taken at Red Bank on 22nd May 2010.
