Double-heading Class 92s

Another four pics from four different contributors for 9th May 2010.

The first features double-heading EWS (DBS) class 92s from Jeff Nicholls. Taken on 7th May 2010 - the pair 92031 The Institute of Logistics and Transport and 92003 Beethoven - worked the morning Tesco container train, northbound, which has become quite popular with photographers.

The second pic is from Alan Rigby. Virgin Class 57, 57307 Thunderbirds, Lady Penelope, is shown heading Virgin passenger stock but the date is not known.


A Geoff Monks' pic is next, taken on 8th April 2010. EWS (DBS) class 90, 90041 is pictured on a Mossend - Hams Hall container working with plenty of empty spaces.

The fourth and final pic in this post is from Andy Appleton and features EWS class 67, 67029 on a Blackburn - Arpley Yard cargo vans working on 3rd September 2007. As a point of interest the badge/logo showing the English lion, Welsh dragon and Scottish stag was designed by Tom Connell. Tom entered a competition in 1996 run by RAIL Magazine in conjunction with EWS to design a new company logo. His design was selected from over 1200 entries. On 14th January 1997 Tom was invited to the Toton Depot to enveil the new logo on the cabsides of class 58, 58037. The latter locomotive was, therefore, the first to carry the new EWS logo.
