A Manchester to Southport service in the hands of Northern Rail 142005 calls at Appley Bridge late in the afternoon of 10 February 2010. The original station building stands on the Up platform although now in use as the 'Station Bar'.... could be worse..

A very wet Blackpool South station sees Northern Pacer 142005, standing by the buffers, ready to leave on the 0844 service to Colne. This is the old Down Lytham platform. All the former railway land to the left of the fence is now used for car parks and roads as is the area behind the photographer continuing all the way to the former Blackpool Central station.
