Blackpool Illuminations
Wednesday, 05th November, 1980

Many years ago British rail used to run "Merrymaker" Specials from London to Blackpool to see the illuminations.
As can bee seen here the station provided some illuminations of its own with the exhaust and steam heat from the stock.
These views show and unidentified class 47 and 45106 at Blackpool North Station
45106 45106 and a 47 stand at Blackpool North awaiting the passengers for their return Merrymakers
45106 45106 stands at Blackpool North Station
47000 With the steam gently rising from the carriages a class 47 stands at Blackpool North
