Hi Ray, great phots. But I'm afraid I'm something of an anorak when it comes to Grids. So for the benefit of your logs, the first one is a Romanian so probably is 028.

The second one, an early Donny build, is likely 036 or 046.

 

Keep 'em comin..! C6T.

Pretty bad picture as its off my iphone and it doesnt like street lights

 

Just sat in crewe with 56302 waiting to do a loco swap with 66849 on the logs and i thought, "i can hear a 56" (mine is shut down) and low and hehold 56087 rolled up the loop with a baglan bay log train heading to chirk, managed to get a quick pic, had i known it was coming i'd have bought my proper camera and tripod with me!

I took this picture many years ago, and today for the first time I have noticed that somebody has put welcome aboard on the front of this 56.

just one of those things I suppose when you don't pay much attention at the time as its just another 56, wonder what else has slipped bye me and I didn't notice

Looking through this thread just now makes me realise how few photos of 56s I've got - I wish I'd taken a lot more when I had the chance...

 

Retford (inevitable really isn't it..!)...

56 006 turned up at Rugby one morning off the overnight Bescot tripper, we couldn't resist using it as the yard pilot for the day. Later on that same night it was sent down to Wembley on the night tripper to get it to Old Oak for a railtour out of Paddington the next day...

A modern one from me.............

 

56094 passing Standish Jn on 18/09/12 with a Gloucester New Yard - Teigngrace empty logs (conveying the rump of the new wagons into service).

 

90' late and the sun which had shone all morning is just disappearing into the distance :banghead:

Apologies if you've already seen this photo from my gallery
Another taken a while ago at Margam depot
Although another sad shot - I did like the reflections of the loco in the water lying between the rails.....
It tempted me to do a split, with part of the shot in colour, and part in B&W

I have added photos of 56301 sitting in the sun at York yesterday at   http://paulbartlett.zenfolio.com/class56 Although the Fastline lettering has gone, the remainder of that fine livery remains in remarkably good condition. My understanding is that this loco is now owned by the "Class56Group" and hired to DRS DCR.

 

I'll scan my other 56 photos soonish.

 

Regards

 

Paul
