Today's view of the same stretch as above
(now the cycle path) taken from the remains of the platform under the Main Road bridge.

The remains of the Archer Street station on the C&WJR branch line
as above which was to join with the Harrington & Lowca Light line.

Copperas Hill station on the Harrington & Lowca Light Railway line was used
by passengers from 1912 to 1921. The loco in the picture has just completed
the 1 in 17 climb from the junction with the C&WJR line above Rose Hill.

Stanley Jackson's scrapbook says that this is a passenger train standing in Lowca Station consisting of Furness Railway Company's loco number 92 and five coaches and that the photo was probably taken in 1913 which is when the passenger service was started.
