East Lancashire Railway, Rawtenstall by 


The East Lancashire Railway is a heritage railway in Lancashire and Greater Manchester, England.The line opened on 25 July 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.

    Has more of a period feel I hink Steve, which suits the subject matter. Maye one could experiemnt with a touch of soft focues, gentle film grain and even sepia toning to enhance the effect….there again I’m an inveterate twiddler and it looks great as it is.

  • I’ll have a dabble later. Thanks for the tips
