I would LOVE to purchase a Quality Reproduction of this map.
Can anyone help , please ?
You definitely don’t want to be in the way if The Flying Scotsman and (reportedly) The Royal Scot collide. Hopefully everyone’s ok.
That's absolutely brilliant. I'll watch it in its entirety later. Settle-Carlisle has to be one of the most panoramic stretches of line in the UK. 45562 - 'Alberta' worked Leeds - Carlisle - Leeds regularly until withdrawal. It wasn't preserved and went for scrap. Preserved 45699 - 'Galatea' has been running as 45562 recently.
Bottom of Fisher Gate Hill wonder if the train was on its way to Southport🤔I saw this on Facebook earlier, I knew they’d filled the arches in at some point but hadn’t seen a photograph for some time of how the track looked before they did it.
This is the Wet Lancs line around 1922 apparently, with a train shortly after leaving Preston station.

Yes, there‘s a bloke on a Penwortham Facebook page who’s been posting quite a few pictures recently of the line through the area.Bottom of Fisher Gate Hill wonder if the train was on its way to Southport🤔
I've a few photos myself from the past few years showing the site of the lines round Whitehouse Junction. Will post a few later.Yes, there‘s a bloke on a Penwortham Facebook page who’s been posting quite a few pictures recently of the line through the area.
Not on that line but I’ve had a decent look round the line around Preston Junction recently. There’s still plenty of signs sof the old line and even were the station used to be.
