West Coast Main Line passing beneath LMR
The Liverpool and Manchester Railway was opened in 1830, from this line branches were opened to Warrington (1831) and Wigan (1832). These two branches eventually became part of the West Coast Main Line and, in order to create a direct route between the two this short length was constructed by the London and North western Railway in 1864 between what became Winwick Junction and Golborne Junction.
85031 is seen heading north and is just about to pass beneath the original LMR.
