A clean looking 47509 'Albion' heads west, passing Parkside Colliery near Newton-le-Willows on 25th October 1980. My notes show this as a special excursion but I can't say if it was heading for Liverpool or would be turning left at Earlestown towards Chester and North Wales. The former D1953 was withdrawn from Bath Road depot in 1992 and cut up there three years later.
