OHL problems at Natland just south of Oxenholme this morning caused chaos throughout the day here with single line working in operation between Milnthorpe and Lambrigg.

To add to the engineers' woes, the weather deteriorated in the afternoon to gale force winds and rain. By now the power was off and 57306 drags a Euston-Glasgow service away from Oxenholme having just regained right line running.
