Remarks & Notes 
Kearsley power station had a short electrified branch from the Manchester-Bolton main line. There were 3 or 4 of these small electrics, maintained, like the power station, on a standby basis. I never saw them used in anger, nor was I aware of the power station actually generating any power. A BR/Sulzer class 25 hurries its single brake van past in the background. No trace remains of the electric railway or power station remain today.
