Lovely locomotive, but what a scruffy bridge.
This is what's known as the "Bin Liner" train from Knowsley Freight Terminal to Wilton.
The bridge is alright, it's the Graffiti yobs that spoil it.
EWS English Welsh and Scottish railway now taken over by DB Schenker. This is a Freightliner class 66, built for heavy freight.
Goods on our railway are getting less and less and road haulage getting bigger and bigger, I personally would like to see more freight on the rails.
Never knew what EWS was. Always associated those letters with wartime EWS.
One comes past us most days,we call it Dusty Bin,it's taking waste from Manchester.
That bloke . He isn't is he?
Location please Mick.
Alex its on the Liverpool railway line where it goes over the Leeds Liverpool canal in Wigan
You cant miss the bridge, its the rusty one with Gregzy written on it.
Just past 7 Stars heading West along the canal.
The wartime EWS was Emergency Water Supply, available for fire-fighting.
Cheers Mick and Dave (OY). I know now.
Garry, the business previously known as DB Schenker Rail UK, has now officially become DB Cargo UK.
Neil, it was the EWS on the train I didn't know about. Everyone of my generation knew what the wartime EWS stood for
Yes you're right Neil.
Anne, I thought you probably did, that's why I didn't put your name in the comment and made it general for others who might not have known.
That goods train is another imported product. We gave the world the railways and we're now having to buy foreign. Crazy!
Lynne I suspect your car is a imported product.
