Bare Lane

The driver of a brace of Class 20s collects the single line staff and ground frame keys from the Bare Lane signalman before proceeding to Heysham Power Station to collect a re-processing load for Sellafield. The Type 1s had been waiting on the Hest Bank chord for the Heysham Boat Train to clear the section. When this signal box closed in 2012 control passed to Preston power box and the staff was no longer required.
