Knowlsey Street Station. The line to bottom left runs to Heywood. The line no longer goes under the Manchester-Ramsbottom line in the other direction, there is now a graded curve connecting the two lines. This allows the private railway The East Lancashire Railway to run regular diesel and steam trains between Heywood and Rawtenstall. The line to the left to Manchester is now part of the Manchester Metrolink tram system.

These steam sheds are still in use for the repair and maintenance of steam locomotives. In these sheds the National Railway Museum entrusted the repair of The Flying Scotsman in 2013.

These sheds, at the time of this photograph, are being used by the electric trains running on the Manchester (Victoria) to Tottington via Bury service. A unique 1200 volt DC side contact system.

On the bridge is probably the third rail electric service from Manchester Victoria to Bury. To the left the line runs to Manchester and to the right it runs on to Ramsbottom and Rawtenstall.
