Advenza No More

Todays post (20th July 2010) comprises four pics, each from a different contributor - two class 57s, a class 37 and Duke of Gloucester.
The first is from John Smith. Advenza Freight Ltd may have disappeared but John's shot of light engine, class 57, 57006, reminds us of that deep blue livery adopted by the company. The pic, taken at Winwick, is dated 15th February 2008.

The second pic of a class 57 is from Jeff Nicholls. He shot Virgin liveried 57309, Brains, on a 'Pendolino drag' northbound, through Winwick, on 20th August 2005.

Bob McClellan's pic of DRS class 37, 37611, working loaded acid tanks to Sandbach, was taken at Winwick on 7th November 2003.

The final picture for today is from Ken Young. We've had some good shots of 'The Duke' lately and Ken's is another. He shot a close up of Standard class 8P, 'Pacific' 71000, Duke of Gloucester, head on, as it approached Bank Quay (with support coach) on July 2nd 2010. Does anyone know the origin of the badge mounted on the buffer beam? If so, please use the comments box at the base of the post or email me at the address at the top of the blog.
