Farington Curve Junction

The entire replacement of the switches and crossings at Farington Curve Jct just south of Preston took place over the Easter weekend of 2009. This view over the worksite is looking north with the East Lancs and Ormskirk lines in the left foreground and WCML slow and fast lines to the right. The Freightliner Cl 66 is sat waiting with several flat wagons on the Preston side of Bee Lane bridge.
