Morecambe Junction

The junction for the Heysham branch, just east of Morecambe (new) station on 13 February, controlled from the ground frame standing to the right of the junction. The lines to the left lead to Bare Lane, thence the WCML, with the line to Heysham turning away to the right. The former line to Lancaster Green Ayre also diverged at this point and can now be followed into Lancaster as a cycle path, passing just to the right of the large blue building. The loop on the extreme right is rarely used nowadays as the nuclear flask trains for the Heysham line normally run top & tail thus obviating the requirement to run around at this point.
