Euxton Junction

Lineside vegetation is taking a hold again after it was extensively cut back last year when a new fence was installed on the west side of the WCML at Euxton Junction. The peace of the countryside is shattered on a Sunday afternoon as a pair of Class 37 locos speed north to Carnforth with the ecs from the previous days Spitfire railtour. So loud are these veteran locos that they drowned out the heavy Sunday traffic on the M6, some 200 m behind the photographer. Now that was a result!
