Structure / Site Summary for 277370

Appleby Junction

Appleby Junction was constructed to link the Settle Carlisle Railway (SCR) with the North Eastern Railway (NER) Company's route between Darlington and Penrith (via Appleby East and Kirkby Stephen East). The track on the former NER route has long since been lifted, but the SCR half of the 'junction' still provides access to the engineering yard sidings. These allow northbound SCR trains to be terminated and reversed at Appleby should the need arise.

Structure Location Map

Tips: This structure is located approximnately at the centre of the map below at the pointed end of the red marker. To adjust the scale of the map, either click on the [+] and [-] buttons (if Google has displayed these in the top-left corner of the map) or double-click your mouse buttons anywhere in the map area: left button = [+] = zoom-in, right button = [-] = zoom out). To 'pan' (move) the map, hold-down the left mouse button, then move the mouse. To open an information bubble containing brief details of the structure, left-click on the red marker. Please note that the position of the marker is approximate because Google keeps moving the map (yes, really!).
