View eastward to the eastern portal of the old tunnel, which is of twin single-line bores, towards Manchester on the ex-GC Manchester - Sheffield/Wath main line, electrified from 1954. (See various other scenes in the locality). This scene shows that the new Peppercorn class K1 2-6-0s were now being used on this route: this is No. 62020 (built 8/49, withdrawn 1/65).
