The Rossendale Farewell Railtour from Manchester Victoria is halted at Ramsbottom, for the level crossing gates to be opened, on its outward journey to Rawtenstall. The enthusiast with cine camera at the second door of the DMU is the late Fred Young, well known among the active members involved in the early days of the E.L.R. Preservation Society. The land in the foreground of this picture is now occupied by the reconstructed Up platform built after the East Lancashire Railway reopened See image 49258.
