Woodhead finale

Post by Deepol » Fri Nov 18, 2011 10:01 am

26049 JASON at Sheffield Victoria in November 1969 with one of the last railtours over the Woodhead Route before the end of through passenger services to and from Manchester. I was on that special in seaonably cold and snowy weather.
Also a memory of Guide Bridge earlier in 1969 with one of the Manchester to Sheffield trains leaving.
