Farington Curve Junction

Viewed from Bee Lane bridge, 156441 negotiates the pointwork at Farington Curve Junction as it swings across to join the Ormskirk line on 17th May 2021. A 153 single unit used to be allocated to this route for the day and shuttled up and down the branch but, when the service frequency was increased to hourly, the diagrams were incorporated with those on the Blackpool South and Colne services and five different units (150/156/158) now go to Ormskirk each day.
