Railway viaducts
A view from Mere House of the railway arches which make the long viaduct carrying the Warrington (Central) line out of central Manchester. Originally this was built by the Manchester South Junction and Altrincham Railway in 1849, and electrified by the LMS in 1930 at 1500V DC, but this was converted to 25KV AC in 1971 because of the obsolescence of the original equipment. The blue-brick viaduct in the background was built by the Cheshire Lines Committee for their line to Liverpool, but the usage of the routes were reversed when the Metrolink was constructed in 1992. The train is a class 185 DMU operated by First Transpennine.
