Carnforth Railway Station

Carnforth Railway Station
The market town of Carnforth in Lancashire is the setting of these photos aimed mainly at its old railway station. Sitting on the ‘West Coast’ railway line, it has always been busy, especially with its close proximity to the Lancaster canal and A6/M6 roads. The town was well known for being a ‘railway town in the 19th century as being at the junction of three major railways. The station was made famous by it being the setting for the 1945 ‘Brief Encounter’ film, refreshment room set (top centre). Alongside this station on the old wagon works and sidings used to be a very big train museum called ‘Steamtown’ that ran from 1967, sadly closed to the public in 1987 but is now run as the ‘West Coast Railway Company’ which operate heritage steam and diesel trains across the UK railway network. Unfortunately there is no public entrance allowed for me to explore there.
The collage photos are self explanatory but the yellow train coming in, is an Avanti West Coast, Pendolino class 390 from Glasgow to London.

Enjoy full screen.

Hi Toz - it is not what it once was. By enlarge the village is still a good place to explore from though as my shoreline and river shots proved..

Keep good. Herb

Thanks Greg. It's not what it used to be. The old film set waiting room, was closed when we got there but the real gem of the old 'Steam Town' museum is out-of-bounds. The town and surroundings are worth seeing though. Enjoy.
