Lancashire could be described as a county of marked contrasts: from the back-to-back terraced houses which typify some of its towns to the beautiful scenery of the southern Lake District. The county which saw the birth of Britain’s first passenger-carrying railway between Liverpool and Manchester in September 1830 also saw the death throes of steam locomotive working from the last three standard gauge depots on British Railways in 1968.
Using the best available colour images, this album looks back at the last decade of steam operation in Lancashire, a time which holds a special place in the affections of steam enthusiasts throughout the country.
