Ewood Bridge and Edenfield

About a month before closure in June 1972 a Newton Heath Derby DMU calls at Ewood Bridge & Edenfield on a Bury to Rawtenstall service. Although the East Lancashire line has now been reopened Ewood Bridge was replaced by the new halt at Irwell Vale and the buildings and most of the two platforms have now gone. Freddie Thomas - one of five drivers in Bury diesel link is at the controls. From 1966 until 1972 a Cravens or Derby DMU was outstationed at Bury for the branch duties.
