Manchester Victoria Railway Station - featuring LNER A4 60009 'Union of South Africa'

Some views of Manchester Victoria Railway Station I took on the morning and the evening of Saturday 1st September 2012.

Victoria is one of the 2 main railway stations in Manchester (the other being Piccadilly) and serves destinations in Lancashire and Yorkshire such as Blackpool, Southport, Wigan, Rochdale, Leeds, Bradford, Huddersfield, Liverpool and Kirkby.

The station has 6 platforms. The 4 through platforms are located underneath the MEN Arena and are part of a rebuild that took place in the early 1990s. The remaining 2 are terminal platforms and are located on the side of the station which dates back to the 1900s. This side also has the platforms for the Manchester Metrolink system.

Sadly the station in its current form is not in the best condition with the overall roof in a terrible state. A poll done a few years ago voted it Britains worst large railway station which I think is more than justified at the present moment. I was therefore careful as to how I filmed to try and do the station as much justice as I could although this was very difficult. However, the station is due to be completely refurbished in 2012 with work expected to be complete by 2014.

At the end of this video comes a real treat for steam enthusiasts! A4 LNER 4-6-2 number 60009 'Union of South Africa' is seen leaving the station with the 'Cumbrian Mountain Express' to Carlisle. I returned later that day to video her making the return journey.
