Class 40 on a Railtour

Photographs from Ken Young, Alan Rigby and David Wood feature in todays post (30th July 2010) all taken at Winwick.

David's shot is an unusual but effective side-on, close up of Freightliner class 66, 66599 working empty coal hoppers, northbound. The pic is dated 22nd July 2010.

Ken's shot, from 2nd July 2010, is another unusual one, taken from behind. He has taken advantage of an empty wagon to get a clean shot of the locomotive. DRS class 66, 66422, is shown heading the afternoon intermodal, northbound.

The pic from Alan features a southbound Pathfinder Railtours' charter from 2nd June 2007. The class 40, 40145, owned by the Class 40 Preservation Society and based at the East Lancashire Railway, is working GWR chocolate & cream passenger stock on the 'Cambrian Coast Express'. The 'Special' ran Leeds - Aberystwyth - Leeds.
