After Ramsbottom closed to passengers in 1972 the Up Platform was completely removed. By February 1981, when the Rossendale Farewell Railtour ran to mark full closure, the area had become something of an eyesore. The 6-car DMU is seen here waiting for the level crossing gates to be opened before continuing to Rawtenstall. See image 21820 for an ELR era view with the now reinstated platform and footbridge.
