54447 New Mills South Junction 27 April 1984

54447 leads what is presumably the very late running 10:42 New Mills Central to Sheffield service past New Mills South Junction on 27 April 1984. 54447 was withdrawn in September 1986 and cut up in the same month by Mayer Newman at Snailwell. The line to the left here skirts the south of Manchester, and at the time this photo was taken was still a freight only route prior to the opening of the Hazel Grove Chord.
