The images have survived sufficiently well over the years, and with a little bit of Photoshopping they produce very good quality colour pictures.
Later it was back to Agfa CT 18 and, when supplies were difficult, even an occasional Ilfochrome was tried.
The wan, midwinter, weak sunshine gives the shot a pleasing 'watercolour' effect, so much more attractive than the hyper saturated colour of some digital images. On the right is the Maltings of Magee, Marshall and Co, Brewers of Bolton.
The colour is provided by the typical LYR signalbox with its window high in the gable end and the outside 'necessary' at the top of the steps. There is an enclosed canopy covering a crane from above the siding into the building.
After all, a colour photo will always polarise opinion about the transition from steam and command a scrutiny bordering on obsession. RECONNAISSANCE WITH A CAMERA by Richard S Greenwood MBEI've always lived in a house where you could hear the trains - at least if the wind was in the right direction.
Okay, perhaps the steam versus diesel debate may have lost some of its sting over years, but even the most placid spotter still bellyaches about the sad demise of Britain's railways during the Sixties, much of it inextricably linked to the decline of BR's ageing steam fleet and the dastardly Beeching axe. All night shunting in the 1940s, overnight freights in the 1950s and 1960s and now East Lancashire Railway locomotives whistling in Heywood station.
The locomotive was shedded at both Wakefield (56A) and at Sowerby Bridge (56E) during the 1960s.
The train is a mixed freight rather than a block coal train so is probably from Healey Mills and is heading for Moston Sorting Sidings.
The West Coast Main Line from Crewe to Carlisle was a magnet for North-West spotters as well as more serious steam locomotive admirers.
This engine was allocated to Bacup shed, which prior to closure in 1954, provided the power for the Rochdale station passenger pilot as well as the goods pilots.
Until 1952 they ran over the direct Rochdale-Bacup line being the only traffic to use the Bacup Shed to Facit section. It wasn't until August 1958, on starting my first fulltime job, that I was able to afford an Ilford Sportsman 35mm camera with a 1/200th second shutter and f3.5 45mm lens.
Early Agfacolour film was very grainy and tended to be contrasty but it sometimes yielded a 'pen and ink' effect which I found very attractive on some subjects.
Then early in 1961 Perutz brought out a much improved film which I used extensively.
