44767 & 44743 at Preston

"This is memorable to me as they were both bound for Blackpool one for North the other for Central and left at the same time. My mate and myself boarded 44767 and my other mates boarded 44743. On the 4 lane track towards Kirkham it was a race between us swapping the lead at well over 70mph only slowing for the the slew in track at Lea stations. Obviously 44743 won as my train stopped at Kirkham. It was great while it lasted and the only time I travelled down the track parallel running." Mike Fielding
