Flying Scotsman, at that time the only steam locomotive allowed on BR, runs into Accrington station from the east on The North Eastern railtour. Accrington North signalbox formerly controlled the junction with the Bury line in the foreground, by this time a parcels siding stub See image 38442. This photo was taken by my late father, Tom Bartlett, who although not an enthusiast himself encouraged my hobby and took me to see this train pass through one of our local stations.
