A month earlier I had photographed 40009 on a Stockport bound ballast train at Denton Junction. The fine signal gantry was in its last year of operation before being replaced by colour lights. The signal furthest away guarded the line to Ashton Moss Junction,the central bracket,the line to Guide Bridge and the missing signal once controlled the long lifted Guide Bridge avoiding line through Dukinfield. April 27th,1984.
