Looking northeast towards Rawtenstall Station in the early 1970s. To the right of the picture is the former southbound platform which by this date was the only platform still in use. Trains from Bury terminated at Rawtenstall after the withdrawal of services to Bacup in 1966. As well as the passenger services Rawtenstall was also served by coal trains at this time. The station had been reduced to a very basic facility.
