Old L&Y 0-6-0 on Up express at Preston
View northward along Platform 6, towards Lancaster, Carlisle etc. on the WCML, also Blackpool; on the right are the East Lancashire lines. On a very busy Summer Saturday in 1953, Control seem to have run out even of Black 5s for they have put ex-L&Y Aspinall 3F 0-6-0 No. 52174 (built c. 1892, withdrawn 10/54) on the Liverpool Exchange portion of the 06.25 express from Aberdeen, the Manchester portion having gone on ahead.
