20078 & 20151 Winwick 12 March 1990

20078 & 20151 pass Winwick on 12 March 1990 with a Bickershaw Colliery to Fiddlers Ferry Power Station MGR. Vulcan Foundry, Newton-le-Willows, the loco's birthplace can be seen directly above 20078. Class 20s were a common sight on coal trains in this area for many years, but were in sharp decline by the time I got around to visiting the area. This is one of the few pictures I have of these locos on MGR duties, a type of train for which they were very well suited, and on which they were very popular with the crews.
