142014 at Rose Grove.
142014 departs from Rose Grove and prepares to enter the single line section to Colne at Gannow Junction, with the 12.44 service from Blackpool South, on the 27th November 2010. Rose Grove was one of the locations that played out the last rites of BR steam in August 1968. The loco depot, along with the up and down sorting sidings, and station buidings have all been swept away, and all that remains is an ever so-long empty island platform, adjacent to the M65 Motorway which passes through the site of 10F.
