Carnforth

With Arnside viaduct closed for repairs in 2011 traffic for Sellafield is routed via the WCML to Carlisle. DRS Class 37s 37667 and 37194 had a lengthy wait in the loops at Carnforth before getting underway again with the 6C53 Crewe to Sellafield on 1 April. The train comprised seven nuclear flasks and is seen here rejoining the main line immediately south of the station platforms. A further halt in the Oxenholme loops was probably expected by the crew. [Editor's note: No 37667 (then D6851) hauled the last down Anglo-Scottish freight on the Waverley Route (the 08.30 Kingmoor-Millerhill) on Saturday 4th January 1969.]
