driver's view Warrington Bank Quay to Wakefield - Class 66


Recommended Posts

I've watched a few driver's view videos made around greater London.  They didn't really hold my attention, which I attribute to having unfortunately never been to England.  I was impressed with the 3 hour 42 minute runtime of this video, so clicked.  Perhaps it's the interesting on-screen information, the scenery, or because it's in the North (where Johnny Marr's heart is, as opposed to his head, which as I understand it is in the south).  Starting just about dead center between Liverpool and Manchester, this is a 99 mile journey first avoiding central Manchester, then coming within about a mile of it via Brewery Junction, before continuing north then east to Wakefield.  Map at 15 seconds into to the video.  Compared to what I see in Japan or here in the US, there seem to be many branch lines throughout the journey, making me wonder just how many lines the UK had before Beeching.
