This page should be regarded as “Work in Progress”. The webmaster will welcome additional information for this page.

In the list below the information is set out in tabular form, spread over four columns. The column entries are -

RailRef The Line Code used in RailRef system.
Line Detail The principal locations included within the Line Code. They are arranged in 'down' direction order. Locations shown are primarily stations and junctions to allow easy cross check against published atlases. Signal box names appear in italics where these are 'intermediate' to stations or have been shown to facilitate links from other pages on this web site. The inclusion of a station or junction name does not imply that there was always a signal box of that same name!
SBR The section reference used in the relevant Signal Box Register published by the Society.
ELR The corresponding Engineer's Line Reference(s). This will be blank for railways that never came within British Railways terms of reference. It will also be blank where British Railways had no surviving responsibility for infrastructure at the time the ELR system came into use.

The Maryport & Carlisle Railway set out its directions of travel on the basis that the Down direction was from Carlisle to Maryport and this was perpetuated by the LMSR and BR-LMR.

The section of line from Carlisle No.5 to Carlisle No.8 was altered from 24 September 1951 to be down from Carlisle No.8 to Carlisle No.5. The change was published in weekly notice W1-38.

With the completion of stage 9 of the Carlisle resignalling on 3 June 1973 the Down direction was altered to be Down from Whitehaven Bransty to Carlisle No.8 to match the rest of the surviving Cumbrian railway lines. The change was published in signalling notice 3G of 1973, a copy of which is held in our digital archive.

The listings on this page show the Down direction used by the Maryport & Carlisle Railway - that is Down from Carlisle to Maryport.
