Abbey Junction station (site/remains)
Abbey Junction station (site/remains)
A regrettably uninspiring view northwestwards from the B5307: ex-NBR & Caledonian Joint junction of the NBR Carlisle (to right) - Silloth (upper left) line with the short-lived Solway Junction Joint line from Brayton (Maryport & Carlisle Rly.)(lower left) over the Solway at Bowness to Annan (Caledonian)(near right). The station closed on 1/9/21 when the Joint line (with its own platform here) was closed over the Solway Viaduct as long ago as 20/5/21, then reopened in 5/22 just from Abbey Junction to Brayton for goods and excursion traffic until eventual closure on 13/2/33. The NBR Silloth line through Abbey Town (nearby to the left) was closed on 7/9/64.
