Class 108, M54253 at Southport.skoðað 5 sinnumA derby built Class 108 2-car DMU is stabled between duties in Southport carriage sidings on the 10th July 1988. M54253 was a Driving Trailer Composite when built, but had been downgraded to all second class in the 1970s. Most of the railway infrastructure behind the DMU has now been swept away. Visible are the toilet blocks on the disused excursion platforms, the coal depot, the loco shed, and the stable blocks for the former goods yard. Viva & Marina British Rail vans are parked in the yard.

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.

Class 306 EMUs at Leicester (GC).skoðað 2 sinnumDating from 1949, former Liverpool St-Shenfield Class 306 EMUs, 055, 033, 083 & 078 wait at the entrance to Vic Berrys Scrapyard at Leicester on July 19th 1982.
