45072 Chinley 20 October 1983

A view of the well known footbridge just to the west of Chinley station, which has served as a vantage point for generations of railway photographers. This 20 October 1983 view clearly shows that the elegant latticework structure is in the middle of a repaint, but that didn't stop it being subsequently replaced by a much plainer structure. 45072 passes underneath with the 6H36 14:59 Collyhurst Street to Tunstead stone empties.
