Class 504, 77174 departs from Bury Bolton Street.3 viewsNow the busy headquarters of the East Lancashire Railway, Bury Bolton Street Station looked rather run-down when this image was recorded in October 1979.

The 50 stylish 4-Car EMUs were built at Derby between 1965-1967 and were synonymous with the southern end of the WCML and its massive late 1960s upgrade which also included a new Euston Station. The 310s were transferred to the London Tilbury & Southend Line in the late 1980s and in turn were replaced as new Class 357s came on stream between 2000-2002. All the 310s were subsequently scrapped.

This and the other views were taken on an early morning visit to the museum, when the volunteers here kindly let me gain access before the official opening time. If your ever in the area when the museum is open, pay them a visit and give them some support. The collection is unique and well worth a look.
