Cab Ride DVD: Preston to Blackpool & Return




We board the cab of a Virgin Trains HST No. 43078 for the 11.41 to Blackpool North and return at 13.06.

It is a lovely day on 9th May 2003 when we depart from Preston’s Platform 3 and soon afterwards bear left at Fylde Junction.

We cross the viaduct at Tulketh and pass through Salwick Station before Kirkham South Junction is approached and moments later pass Kirkham & Wesham Station.

Following Kirkham North Junction we pass through Poulton-Le-Fylde and Layton stations before getting a glimpse of Blackpool No. 1 signal box followed by No. 2 signal box and views of Blackpool Tower ahead.

We pull into Platform 3 at 12.05.

The service has a layover of an hour here before returning to Preston via the same route.

Produced in association with Virgin Trains.

Approx. 50 minutes.
