Trans-Pennine Express

Today's photo shows the Trans-Pennine Express passing through Guide Bridge Station at the western boundary of Ashton. The train is heading for Manchester's Piccadilly Station. Being an express, the train doesn't actually stop here at Guide Bridge, but has to slow down where the line from Stalybridge joins the line from Glossop. (The junction can be seen in the distance if you look at the larger version of the photo.)

We saw a view of the station from the road bridge a couple of weeks ago.

See Bird's Eye View of this location.

  1. Great colours on this train, and it has such an important-sounding name. Does it slow down long enough for someone to jump on?

  2. I can remember in the late 70's when Guide Bridge had massive sidings, and a major player in British Rails Northern Network.

  3. Have train, will travel :-)

  4. Hi - brings back memories of travelling from Ulverston to York more times than I care to recall. Has the coffee got any better?
