Trains leaving Oldham Werneth for Manchester would bear left slightly to gain the formation of the 1880 line through Failsworth to Thorpes Bridge Junction. Straight on led to the infamous 1:27 Werneth incline down to Middleton Junction. 150135 leaves Werneth on a stopping service to Manchester Victoria in this view eastwards showing Werneth Tunnel and immediately beyond it Oldham Central Tunnel. Oldham Werneth closed in 2009 and platforms have been removed. See image 21183 for the view from the other side of this overbridge.
