67417 1959-05-02 Oldham Clegg Street

67417 at Oldham Clegg St is on the last day of service and the nameboard reads so.

2nd May, 1959, with Oldham Central station (which closed at a later date) in the background. The train depicted is not a "special", but is the normal scheduled service from Guide Bridge via Ashton (Oldham Road) and Park Bridge. The train had been strengthened to 3 carriages because it was the last day, with extra passengers anticipated. The headboard, which had been placed by the engine crew, to mark the occasion read "May 2nd 1959 - Last Day - O.A. & G.B."
