156481 Kilnhurst 27 December 2003

156481 passes Kilnhurst with an Arriva Trains Northern service to Manchester Piccadilly on 27 December 2003. This area has seen considerable change in the passenger service operators during the last few years. Formerly Northern Spirit, then Arriva Trains Northern, followed by Northern Rail. At least they have a strong regional identity! Note the Class 158 with a Trans Pennine service waiting to leave Swinton station in the background.
