SD4262 : False silo

taken 10 years ago, near to Heysham, Lancashire, Great Britain

False silo
False silo
The silo houses a mobile phone base station. Someone obviously believes this is more aesthetic than a mast.
The railway line was originally double track and was used as a test bed for AC overhead electrification. It closed to passengers in 1966, but now carries 2 return trains a day to Heysham for the Isle of Man ferry. It also serves Heysham power station.
