View south at Morpeth station on the ECML on a May afternoon in 2004. Just beyond the attractive station buildings on the up platform is the start of the infamous Morpeth Curve, the most severe curve (17 chains (340 m) radius) on any main line in Britain, turning through almost 90 degrees immediately south of the Station. The curve has been the scene of three major derailments over the years. There is a permanent speed restriction of 50mph through this section of the ECML.
