Progress at Huyton

At last, some overhead wires have appeared at Huyton.  To be specific, catenary wire has been strung over the Down Fast and Down Slow lines for the length of the platforms and beyond.

As you can see, the catenary has not been fixed to the supports in all places yet.


  1. Aweek gone Friday I passed Wigan and confirmed that wires were up, though not tensioned, at the turnout for the St Helens Route. Progress, but a long way to go. What has gone wrong?

  2. And rumours are growing about Wigan Springs Branch becoming a depot for the 319's.
