This photo' has reminded me to tell you that just across the GC about level with the loco', is where a delayed action,German bomb went off, just as my Dad,who was an ARP warden, arrived on the steel sided bridge that the train is about to go under. The bomb made a new bay in the side of the GC and killed one of Billie Eatocks cows. I was at the iron bridge at Bickershaw Junction with my Dad's flask and sandwiches but the police wouldn't let me go any further. E.T.

Brilliant photo of the (now sadly long gone) GC line,it must not have had long to go before it lost its passenger service when you took this photo.
Thanks for uploading.
