2 Class 66s and a Class 60

The three pics in today's post (18th August 2010) are all from Geoff Monks.
The first shows a 'Malcolm' liveried class 66, 66405, on a southbound, intermodal working through Winwick on 26th October 2006. Geoff adds that the loco is no longer with DRS and has been replaced with 66412.
Pic number two was taken at Bank Quay, early morning, on 11th August 2010. Freightliner class 66, 66518, is shown northbound "on the (normally) up loop presumably because the signaller didn't want to delay the slightly late running Voyager (Birmingham NS - Glasgow) any further".
The final shot, taken at Winwick on 2nd February 2007, depicts one of only two, Load Haul liveried class 60s, 60059 Swindon Dalesman, working empty coal hoppers, northbound, at Winwick. Load Haul was one of four BR freight companies acquired by EWS in 1996. EWS was taken over by Deutsche Bahn in 2007 and rebranded to D.B. Schenker in 2009.
