Volcanic Ash and The Royal Mail

The photographs keep rolling in - many thanks to everyone who contributes. Your efforts are keenly anticipated and much appreciated. For the 11th May 2010 post I am adding a pic from each of three regular contributors.

The first pic is from Glenn Oakley. When the volcanic ash cloud from Eyjafjallajokull in central, southern Iceland caused havoc in the aviation industry (and continues to do so) one of the businesses affected was the Royal Mail. As a result more mail was sent by rail. Glenn's pic shows a long, twelve unit, mail train of class 325 emus taken on the 20th April 2010.

The second pic is another gem from Eddie Bellass. EWS class 56, 56081 is shown crossing Winwick Junction, southbound, on 21st June 2003.


The final pic in this post is from Jeff Nicholls and features a recent, empty passenger stock move. The locomotive is WCRC class 37, 37516 and the date, 7th May 2010.

Don't forget to use the links beside the blog at the right hand side if you require info on loco or charter train movements, want to read a good rail mag or website on line, or purchase some model railway equipment at discounted prices.
