The East Lancashire line was closed to the east of Blackburn in the second half of February to replace a canal bridge near Accrington and repair one near Rose Grove. Blackpool buses were used on the rail replacement services and one is seen here pulling up at the back door of Blackburn station on 18th February 2020. Note the bus shelter in the same style as the canopies on the platforms behind, as seen in image 26685.
