Photographing Skips - The class 67's

This caught me by surprise today at Wigan North Western.  No mention of this on Realtime Trains website, just a station announcement to stand well away from the edge of the platform as the approaching train does not stop.

DB 67026 Diamond Jubilee

One's train doesn't feature on RTT due to security issues. Even the notices within the signalboxes are kept under lock and key until needed.

 

Cheers,

Maybe One is a track gricer?

 

My MiL received Maundy money last year in Blackburn - it was a real PITA to find out when One's train was passing me.

 

Cheers,

Mick

....And seen parked up in platform 3a bay at Stockport on display for the Stockport Railshow held on platform 3 from 10am until 4pm and well worth attending to find some more new photo of ICI hopper workings.

It's only taken 18 months to turn out another red skip

 

Not my photo

 

I have a "spare" Hornby 67 on my shelf - maybe..... (even though I've already done 67027)

Cheers,

Mick

Looks like wsmr/chiltern livery will soon be a thing of the past if they are repainting them as they come in for exam

 

Shame i'm not allowed to take pics on toton as 013 was sat next to 027 yesterday when i went on the fuel plant for water

Running yesterday from Belmont Down Yard to Wigan Wallgate DN Carr Sdg and back to Wkfld K.Whithams Cobra was DB Schenker Class 67 number 67013 photographed approaching Golborne Junction on the West Coast Main Line.  I think this is the route learner for when the new waste train starts from Knowsley to Wilton.
