For this last post in July (31st, 2010) I will again use three pics from three different contributors.
The first is another pic of class 8P 4-6-2, 71000 Duke of Gloucester. We have used several pics previously of 'The Duke' on the 'Cumbrian Coast Explorer' and all of them have been excellent. Well, this one is just as good and was taken by Ken Young as the 'Special' steamed out of Bank Quay on 3rd July 2010.
The second pic is from Jeff Nicholls. In his shot class 47, 47815 Great Western, in BR two-tone green livery, is shown in Arpley Yard collecting empty stock for Riviera Trains. The pic is dated 17th December 2009.
The final pic in this post is from Bob McClellan and features class 37, 37372, working wagons, off repair, on an Allerton - Arpley run. The pic was taken at Winwick on a very dull, grey day on 18th December 2003. The loco is in BR Mainline Blue livery with silver stripe and is now owned by 'The Baby Deltic Project'.
