50768 has Barrow on its blind, Lancaster Castle, 2/8/79. It had just worked in on the late afternoon from Windemere. Note the handrail in the inside of the cab door, used for climbing up from track level. Robert Frise.
In late June 1966 a three-car Cravens set arrives into Shustoke station. The DMBS leading is either M50760 or M50768. Michael Mensing.
A scene which sums up the downfall of a one-time main line route, On Midsummers Day, June 21st 1980 a Cravens Class 105 Power-Twin (the Motor Brake Second noted as M50768), arrives at Croston with the 13.37 Ormskirk to Preston service. The station was still equipped with vintage LMS concrete lamps on the one remaining operational platform. The former main line was singled in the early 1970s, and the one-time Goods Yard became a Timber Yard. Martyn Hilbert.
