Standish Junction

Immediately south of Standish station was Standish Junction, where the Whelley Loop left the WCML and ran to the east of Wigan. In this picture looking north towards the site of Standish station a Virgin Voyager heads north on 15 January 2012. The burrowing junction under the WCML can just be identified beyond the second OHLE stanchion on the right with the brick tunnel entrance almost at right angles to the track.
