Huyton Track 4

I passed through Huyton Station this morning and noted that rails are now in place on track 4, the future Up Chat Moss Slow.  The rails run from a point somewhere in the distance towards Roby (As far as I could see in the rain!) to the east end of the platform at Huyton.

Amusingly, just west of Roby a speed limit sign for trains on the third track has been planted slap bang in the middle of the four foot!

I presume this work is being done so early because it's a lot easier messing about with cranes before the masts and wires are erected.
