Ah, remember standing at the end of that platform, trainspotting as a kid in the 1950's. Trains were not that clean back then.

Nice pic, John.

how did you know it was going to be there?

Nadine,If you "Google" steam rail tours it gives you the schedule for these trips. This one should have passed straight through Wigan without stopping but it arrived 15 minutes early and was held in the loop until the Virgin Pendolino had gone through.
