View northward, towards Preston, Carlisle and Scotland, Manchester and Liverpool, on the WCML: a time-honoured scene at the great junction of Crewe, but when only the line from Crewe to Manchester had been electrified. Stanier 'Princess Royal' Pacific No. 46206 'Princess Marie Louise' (built 8/35, withdrawn 10/62) heads the 10.15 Glasgow Central to London Euston (relief to the Royal Scot).
