323236, an ex-British Rail class 323 passenger train draws into Manchester Piccadilly Station on the Northern rail service from Glossop and Hadfield.

The British Rail Class 323 electric multiple units (EMUs) were built by Hunslet TPL from 1992-93. Forty-three 3-car units were built for inner-suburban services around Birmingham and Manchester. These trains were the last vehicles to be built by the struggling manufacturer Hunslet before it collapsed (LinkExternal link ) These trains were amongst the last constructed in the UK before rail privatisation.
