Ladybridge Lane looking towards Bolton
This is a busy section of railway on the approach to Bolton. The train is a Northern Rail Class 142 "Pacer" working the 14:52 Wigan Wallgate to Manchester Victoria service. At one time there were four parallel lines of track here. With the run down of the railway system in the 1960s and 70s the "slow" lines were removed. In the early 1990s a modern colour light signalling system was installed, centrally controlled from Manchester. This now enables a quite intensive train service to be operate on the remaining two tracks.
