142030 Rainford 12 April 2003

Token exchange at Rainford on 12 April 2003. The signalman is just about to grab the single line token from the driver of 142030, as the unit approaches Rainford station with the 13:46 Kirkby to Rochdale First North Western service. The signal box is still called Rainford Junction, even though the only point it controls is the one behind the DMU. Formerly it controlled the north and south chords that linked with the now closed Ormskirk to St Helens line that crossed over this line. As the light angle was better, I also took a picture of this unit as it called at the station.
