Another Three from Three

Three of our most recent and regular contributors are featured today, 16th August 2010, with three pics showing four different locos.

Alan Rigby has supplied the first pic. Ginsters (the cornish pasty people) liveried class 158, 158821, is depicted at Winwick on 25th January 2006. As class 158s are infrequent at Winwick today, this one and others like it must have been an attraction for railway photographers a few years ago.
A pic of class 47 dragging a class 66 is next. Ken Young photographed Colas class 47, 47739 Robin of Templecombe 'dragging' an empty logs train headed by Colas class 66, 66841, 'dead in train'. Ken shot this scene at Winwick on 6th August 2010.
The third pic in this post is from John Smith. The shot of class 47, 47270/1971, Swift, in BR blue livery was taken at Earlestown on 8th August 2010. It was on the tail of 'The North Wales Coast Express' headed by the black Duchess (see the previous post for details). The class 47 is owned by BREL - Boden Rail Engineering Ltd., - but is certified for lease to the mainline. It was liveried in BR blue in 2008 on the Nene Valley Railway at Wansford, and co-numbered 1971. Its present home is Washford Heath.
