76084 at Newsholme

Just come into possession of this image from a magazine of 76084 passing Newsholme signalbox on the Blackburn to Hellifield line. It looks like an early 1960’s shot as 76084 isn’t carrying any overhead powerline flashes on her front steps. This is a typical formation of train on this run with 3 suburban coaches in tow. We have an image of 76084 in a bay platform at Blackburn station about to depart on this service with possibly the same coaching set behind.

Thanks to Mel Rutter for spotting this and scanning it for us. Do you have anything similar in your collection you might let us see and add to our library?
