Ravenscraig Steel Works

Standing on the bridge over Merry Road looking towards the former BSC Ravenscraig site in October 2008. The line carried strip coil trains, limestone from Shap and scrap from various sources destined primarily for the strip mill and scrap yards. In the early 1980s the line continued on to Shieldmuir Junction where it also served the Lanarkshire Steelworks.
