Steam Locomotive, East Lancs Railway by 


The East Lancashire Railway is a heritage railway in Lancashire and Greater Manchester, England.The line opened in 1987 operating a service from Bury to Ramsbottom via Summerseat. In 1991 the service was extended via Irwell Vale to Rawtenstall, and in September 2003 an eastbound extension from Bury to Heywood was opened. To reach Heywood, the line climbs a gradient of 1 in 36, and falling at a gradient of 1 in 41, to cross over the Manchester Metrolink line into Bury. The heritage line is now just over 12 miles (19 km) long, and has a mainline connection with the national railway network at Castleton, beyond Heywood. There are plans to extend the running line further to Castleton in the future.

    You should try something different more often. This is amazing. (The steam trains on the Lakeside and Haverthwaite railway run past my house. I think you’ve inspired me to have a crack at them.)

  • Thanks again Jamie, makes a change photographing something different.
