Manchester Victoria

Whistle while you wait. An early EE Class 40, 40008, idles on the centre roads at Manchester Victoria between banking duties. When Victoria was rebuilt the trainshed was demolished and new platforms built. This view was taken from what is now Platform 3, the old through platform to Exchange station. The lines on which the loco is standing are now covered by the new Platforms 4 and 5, See image 29761 with the Manchester Arena above.
