Two trains at Hyde Central

Two more photographs following on from the previous post about the Improvements at Hyde Central Station.

As the Northern Rail service from Manchester Piccadilly to Rose Hill (Marple) was pulling into the station a Freightliner locomotive sped through in the opposite direction pulling a large number of trucks.

These trucks will have originated from the Viridor recycling site at Bredbury. I don't know how many trucks there were as they continued to trundle through as I was boarding the Marple train.

A contribution to Blue Monday and Our World Tuesday.


  1. What a perfect capture of a blue train car. Love it

  2. Hi Gerald,

    I love trains as my father worked on the railroad. Therefore, it can't get any better than a BLUE train! Isn’t it fun finding blues to share?

    Happy Blue Monday!

  3. never saw blue trainwagons. very nice.

  4. The trucks are a lovely, intense blue. quite a change from the rusty yellow or red ones I tend to see in my world.

  5. I got caught by a long train the other day, had my camera out, but not one car was blue. You found a good one tho.

  6. Wonderful photography of the trains and blue skies! Cape Ann MA hasn't seen blue skies for a week now! I feel like we are living in London!

    Happy Week to you,
    artmusedog and carol

  7. Here a lot of those train cars would tend to bear graffiti.

  8. Lovely cars. Looks like they have american undercarriage.
