47434 at Farington Junction.skoðað 4 sinnumOn the 29th March 1987, Class 47, 47434 brings a Blackburn to Wembley Football Special off the 'back line' as it approaches the WCML at Farington Junction. The track in the foreground leads to the loco exchange sidings, put in place at the time of electrification in 1972/73 so that Southbound freights could change traction from diesel to electric. With the demise of wagonload freight in the early 1980s using the S&C, the practice ceased and the sidings have remained unused.
