    One of the pioneering AC overhead electrification schemes, opened by the Midland Railway in 1908 the power was supplied at 6.6kV 25Hz AC to a fleet of nine operating as one, two or three car trains. Withdrawal came in February 1951. After two years of steam trains the line was converted to 50Hz as a proving ground for the later West Coast Main Line technology. The catenary was taken down in 1966, the Midland route from Lancaster (Green Ayre) closed and services concentrated on the ex-LNWR line from Lancaster (Castle).

    Given the beautiful summer weather, I spotted this building under construction just opposite the beach near Morecambe promenade Railway Station. Exploring the images of Morecambe more closely, I find it fascinating to spot industrial sites and a more leisurely seaside in close vicinity. The question here is therefore: what will this building be used for?
