Burscough Junction

The bridge in the foreground still carries the Preston to Ormskirk single line but that in the background now only the trackbed of the curve from Burscough Junction to Burscough Bridge See image 22975. However, if proposals come to fruition their roles would be reversed. Electrification would be extended north from Ormskirk and round the curve to Burscough Bridge. Trains from Preston would be similarly diverted over a relaid North to West curve and the direct line closed. We shall see.
