Rose Hill Marple Photo Gallery 2: 1977 - November 2010

In 1977, the line from Marple Wharf Junction was still double track throughout, with a turnback facility some way beyond Rose Hill station on what was once a through route to Macclesfield. The train has reversed and will shortly form a service back to Manchester Piccadilly.

A Gloucester RCW DMU stands at Rose Hill Marple station's down platform during a thunderstorm in the summer of 1979. The unit had arrived at the station on a service from Manchester Piccadilly. The tail lamp would be moved to the other end of the unit for its return journey.
