On 12 July 2003 a preserved former British Railways English Electric type 4 locomotive number D345 is seen heading west through Widnes South station. From the 1960s to the early 1980s locomotives of this type were a common sight at Widnes South. In 2003 such a sight was extremely rare. D345 became a Class 40 when the TOPS system was introduced in 1973 and was given the number 40 145. The locomotive is travelling from Warrington to Liverpool to work a railtour.
