The power of Nature reclaiming back it's land, the railway lines will soon be forgotten.

This will be what left of springs branch railway sidings

Before moving downunder in 1969 we lived in cecil st.which backed onto the railway sidings.
I can always remember my mother complaining about the steam trains making her just washed white bed sheets mucky, and my dad coming out of our outside lav saying in the future these trains will be all run on electricity,we did laugh but it seems it turned out that he was correct.

My brother in law worked on the railway Cathy, and he said the same.But what about cars? They are going to be all electric soon.Who would have thought that?

Ha well said WN1 Standisher, Mick's not spitting his dummy out now his he.

Trams were electric, we've gone a full circle.

WN1 Standisher I think the reason why Micks photos have been chosen as Photo a Day on the last 4 days is because he went out there to take the photos and then sent them in to WW, I don't think he would have done any queue jumping to be honest.

Mick how do you upload photos on photo a day please.

Comment by: WN1 Standisher on 7th April 2021 at 21:56

I'm sure Dave Oy would agree James

James, other photographers are probably obeying the rules and staying local.

Comment by: Mick on 8th April 2021 at 07:55

Teasy, the rules say that you can walk 5 miles to do you daily exercise, and if your on a bike that distance can be doubled and if your bike is pedal assist you can add another third on top of that .
This is what Ive been doing except for when Ive been to Manchester, Bolton and Horwich for essential food shopping.
The only times our household have broken the travel rules is when we went to Haydock and St Helens for our Covid jab
Both of these journey were done in my shiny car.

Lesley - since no one else has responded... you simply send your pic to: brian@wiganworld.co.uk

I don't know why an invitation to submit pics isn't attached to each day's image....

Manchester, Bolton and Horwich for essential food shopping? And wasn’t Boris accused of breaking the rules for going more than seven miles on a bike ride?

Thank you so much RevDavid Long, very much appreciated.
