Farington Junction

White tyres, white buffers and a shiny new paint job. Newly named 86254 William Webb Ellis speeds a passenger service north past the loco exchange sidings at Farington Junction. The bridge is still a popular vantage point for local enthusiasts. 86254 continued in service for a further 22 years being withdrawn in 2002 and cut up at Booths, Rotherham two years later.
