31410 & 31439 Blackburn 19 July 1992

31410 Granada Telethon & 31439 pull away from Blackburn station on 19 July 1992 with the 19:15 Blackburn to Bolton section of the 'Granada Telethon Pullman'. This all day tour of the north west started from Liverpool, and visited Wigan, Southport, Blackpool, Preston, Morecambe, Carnforth, Clitheroe, Blackburn, Bolton, Rochdale and Oldham Mumps, before terminating at Manchester Victoria. Lengthy stops at each station allowed plenty of time to raise money for Granada Television's 'Telethon '92' event. I'm glad the train was running to time, as the shadows in the foreground were advancing rapidly towards the running line.
