After Track Lifting The following photographs were taken shorty after the track lifting at South Pelaw Junction was completed. A view from the footbridge looking under the, then new, bridge that takes the A693 over the junction. The trackbed is that which led to Ouston Junction. Note the concrete trunking near the pillar on the right, this would have taken wires to the colour light signal that controlled access to the junction.
