A Southport bound BRCW 104 DMU crosses the Leeds Liverpool Canal at Gathurst, and passes underneath the M6 Motorway, on 28th November 1978. At this time there was still some commercial traffic on the Leeds Liverpool and the barge 'Lune' can be seen in the lowering lock. If I recall correctly this was an unpowered butty being towed by a similarly loaded motor barge.
