Last weekend, on Sunday 29th January 2017, the Branchline Society visited the Thompson Park Railway in Burnley, Lancashire.

The BLS was established in 1955 and is Britain’s leading amateur group for the study of railway infrastructure and history of networks.

Their visit brought some unusual shots of passenger trains in the sheds and in sidings.
