142027 2J40 PFY 11/06/17
142027 and 156486, in old and new Northern liveries, restart from 1896-vintage Poulton-le-Fylde station on 11th June 2017 with the 2J40 1121 Blackpool North - Manchester Victoria. Something of a poignant shot for me: having grown up in Poulton this will be the last time I see this view before electrification of the Blackpool route. Note that the track has already been renewed, and vegetation has been cleared from the route of the fast lines, removed way back in 1973.
