    It’s Preston, south end – see cover of the Society’s Portfolio No 13.

    This is a photo of the south end of Preston station. The enclosed footbridge leads from the station to the Park hotel with a view towards the East Lancashire line (Butler Street) underneath. I believe that the circles on the signals denotes shunting movements.
