Is the line shown in the distance, the line coming out of the Wigan N.W. railway station?.

Looks like the platforms were still lit by gas.
The waiting rooms at Wigan Wallgate and also the plate layers hut across Wallgate in the goods yard, still had gas light in the late 1970s.

Albert, The train hauled by an electric locomotive is on its
way to Glasgow. The line under and beyond the arch divides
with the line to the left going to Liverpool, and Southport
to the right.

Thank you Ray. It is the line, with train on its way, as you state, to Glasgow, that I was referring to.
