350406 leans into the curve as it heads south from Penrith with an Edinburgh to Manchester Airport service on 20th October 2019. This view, taken from the footpath on the M6 bridge, shows the Down Loop in the foreground, and its intermediate signal that allows two trains to be in the loop. Until 1972 the Keswick branch climbed away to the right at this point. See image 21967 from 1967 looking back to a brand new bridge, and the under construction M6, from where the EMU is in this image.
