BLS "Bootle Brush", PoV 47245, Ormskirk, 8th December 2019
No time to take any other shots at Ormskirk as I had to change ends of the train, from 47826 which had arrived on the rear of the BLS "Bootle Brush", to 47245 which would be trailing on the return from Ormskirk. This is the view from the cab as the train restarts towards Kirkdale, now running as 1Z29, 12:50 from Ormskirk to Southport, the object in the bottom left of the picture being the back of the BLS Headboard! Ormskirk is no longer a through station, the single platform being shared by Merseyrail for southbound trains and Northern for trains northwards to Preston, though they are designated Platforms 1 and 2 respectively. 12:50½, Sunday 8th December 2019.
