 new Middleton Press album takes a look at the former main line from Wennington to Morecambe and Heysham. This area west of Lancaster, covering approximately nine square miles, has over time boasted two competing railway companies, two harbours, ten stations, over a dozen signal boxes and extensive freight and passenger services. On the approach to Lancaster, the line passed a carriage and wagon works, munitions factory and a power station that were all rail-served. Across the River Lune there was another munitions factory, an oil refinery and chemical plant, two gasworks and a nuclear power station, again all rail-served. The area was host to an electrified suburban rail system for over half a century from the early 1900s and, later, pioneered overhead line electrification that became the national standard.
   Much of the network and infrastructure have disappeared, save for one or two prominent landmarks. Today the area is served by regular passenger workings from Leeds, Skipton and Lancaster, one of which is the daily boat train to Heysham Port.
