Strand Road - Preston Docks - 1982.
The changing scene at Strand Road. On the 3rd June 1982, 37024 has just arrived with the train from Lindsey Oil Refinery. Viewed from the footplate of one of the former dock Sentinel diesels, left to right we have the Boiler House & Chimney of the old Dick Kerr Works, the Victoria Warehouse of 1845, the BAC Factory on Strand Road and on the extreme right the wartime day nursery building. The train would now be sat in the Park & Ride car park! The Penwortham Bypass Bridge now runs across this scene.
