A few more from me.

 

All different details.

 

The unique 66001 - 0K05 Carlisle-Crewe at Whalley - note the extra air pipe across the front and the arrangement of hold-down lugs

66002. 6L-something at Whalley - along with 66001, this cannot be fitted with a swinghead buckeye and has a different arrangement of hold-down lugs

66003, a full production version loco - emerging from the undergrowth at Clitheroe Cement works to cross West Bradford Rd with 6S00 to Mossend

And here's 66122 shunting at Peak Forest - note the tail and marker lights are on - this is what you get if you run a DC fitted loco on DCC!

A couple from my travels yesterday morning at Havant with a top and tailed engineers train:

 

9115075796_90e0bab681.jpg

66087 on the front

 

9112858795_7ba2954ef6.jpg

66183 bringing up the rear.

 

From Thursday (20th June) is 66592 passing through Southampton Central:

9090859261_3c836c4968.jpg

 

 

And from earlier in the month, unique blue livered 66414 also at Southampton Central:

Do wish someone would find the fusebox for the automated announcement system at Central and stick a fire axe in it as barely ten seconds goes by without another repetitive inane announcement. It never shuts up!!!

Got a donor model to do this one as thanks to my penchant for oddballs and one off's.  Can't make up my mind what shade of blue the main colour is though...

It's been on here a couple of times before, but I hope worth repeating for the newer members.

 

66720 works 4C77 Fidler's Ferry PS - Newbiggin gypsum empties. If only they'd put the loco the other way round.

Just the exact image that I'm trying to portray with my model TTA's....... (Although there is a short TTA set with a 60 on the Tugs thread that is possibly more appropriate!)
