Up Cup Final Special on the WCML north of Bletchley
View NW, on the West Coast Main Line towards the later site of Milton Keynes Central Station, Rugby and the North. The train, for Manchester United supporters, was headed by Rebuilt 'Royal Scot' 7P 4-6-0 No. 46122 'Royal Ulster Rifleman'; United lost 1 - 2 to Aston Villa. I spent the day enjoying my Lineside Pass by walking all the way along the track from Bletchley to Wolverton - i.e. right through present-day Milton Keynes: it was a memorable and productive outing! This photograph was taken near Denbigh Hall Box.
