SRL No 832 Stanier Black 5 No 44803 at Manchester Victoria station trans pennine service 13 August 1965

Stanier Black Class 5, 4-6-0 No 44803 at Manchester Victoria station at platform 14 on the 13th August 1965. Allocated to 26A Newton Heath No 44803 waits to depart from Victoria station with possibly a trans-pennine express to Liverpool. This shot gives us a view of the west end of the station looking eastwards. Of note is the repaired bomb damage to the platform surface on the right. All of the area seen in this shot was originally under cover until the blitz. Also of note is the depression bar on platform 13 line protecting the facing point behind the photographer; more modern installations use track circuits. This is a later version where the depression bar operates an electrical switch which then locks the lever electrically.
