Class 25, 25142 - Last Train Courtaulds, Ribbleton.
The last train of empty 16Ton mineral wagons is slowly brought out of the exchange sidings, at the doomed Courtaulds Factory at Ribbleton, and onto the former Longridge Branch, on February 12th 1980, with Class 25, 25142 in charge. This view is looking in the direction of Grimsargh & Longridge, with the truncated branch trailing away behind the locomotive. This area has been completely transformed with the building of an industrial estate, and a link road to the M6 Motorway.
