Sidings south of Corkickle station
Sidings south of Corkickle station
This view, taken from a passing train many years ago, was hard to pin down on the map, as the sidings (and Corkickle No.1 signalbox in the background) have long since been removed. The clue came in a railway track diagram ["British Rail Track Diagrams - No 4 London Midland Region", Quail publishing, 1990] that showed the several sidings and two signalboxes in the area, along with their chainage (distance along the line) - No. 1 box being 43 chains / 865m south of Corkickle tunnel.
