Leyland Station, with train
Leyland Station, with train
View northward, towards Preston etc.; West Coast Main Line, ex-Lancashire Union (London & North Western/Lancashire & Yorkshire Joint) Euxton Junction - Preston section. Trains on the Manchester - Blackpool axis that joined at Euxton Junction added to the WCML trains made this an extremely busy four-track section. This view, taken on the same afternoon at precisely the same spot as SD5422 : Leyland Station, with train, shows the 16.00 Blackpool Central - Wigan (North Western) - Tyldesley - Manchester Exchange stopping train, of only four coaches but double-headed by two Stanier Class 5 4-6-0's Nos. 45318 and 45195 (built respectively 1937 and 1935, 45195 being withdrawn 7/66, but 45318 was one of the very last survivors, lasting until 8/68).
