The recently upgraded cutting at Hampson Lane near Galgate has the appearance of a brand new railway. Freightliner 70011 is on a Coatbridge to Daventry service on 4th April 2016. This is timetabled for electric haulage but has been using Class 70s recently. The bridge in the background carries the motorway slip roads at Junction 33 of the M6.
