Welsh Steam 'Special'

Ken Young, David Wood and Jeff Nicholls are represented in today's post (20th August 2010) with a steam railtour and two coal workings.
The first pic in this post is from Ken Young, taken on 23rd July 2010 at Winwick. Ian Riley's 'Black 5', 44871, is depicted sporting 'The Cambrian' headboard, working a support coach to Machynlleth for the popular, summer steam 'Special'. 'The Cambrian' is running Machynlleth-Porthmadog and sometimes Pwllheli, between July 26th and August Bank Holiday Monday.
David's pic is dated 22nd April 2010 and shows Freightliner class 70, 70006, running towards Arpley Yard with loaded coal hoppers for Fiddlers Ferry P.S.

A second coal train is shown next. Jeff's shot is dated 25th March 2010 and features EWS (DBS) class 59, 59201 Vale of York, after it had just run round at Walton Yard. A feature of this loco is a commemorative bell, attached to the front of the cab above the windows, which cannot be seen when the loco is running in reverse.
