Ladies & Gentlemen, Boys & Girls that is 1515 photos scanned and displayed here.

So for now that is your lot but after 7 months I finally have a weekend off work so I may start to scan my late 90's onward pictures. 

For now though thanks for looking and commenting.

Thanks !

 

Couple of comments :-

 

The Merseyrail ones are Hightown, with the unit leaving the station passing the signal box

 

and the next 2 are a unit leaving Birkdale with the box in the next shot.

 

The ones labelled "Llandudno" at the end of September are actually Llandudno Junction, which is a few miles from the town. (apart from the one of the Great Orme)

The big building that dominates the skyline in the photos looking down the platforms at Southport was the now-demolished Leaf UK factory, the home of the Chewit. I went there for work several times in the 90s: at the time I did all the Common Agricultural Policy work for Customs & Excise in the Liverpool area. They had a huge still from the classic "chewier than a fifteen-storey block of flats" advert on the wall in the foyer.

I do remember it well, especially the advert, most of our photos of the area were taken when we would go shopping with our mother and we would get an hour of that visit to take photos and numbers.

Only later in life after everything good had sadly gone did I visit Southport regularly when I worked for Blockbuster.

It's not what it was, in a railway or any other sense :(

TRAINS NO MORE!

 

Here are some photos from a day out visiting closed lines starting at Lowgill Viaduct before heading up to see some of the remains of the Stainmore route around Tebay and Kirkby Stephen.
