In the winter of 2009/10 a railway station appeared where before there was nothing. By the following winter there was virtually no trace of it ever having existed, but in the 12 months that Workington North operated, it (along with the neighbouring Workington Station) was the busiest station on the line. So here is a short portfolio featuring the public transport response to the destruction of the bridges of Workington, following the floods of November 2009. Whilst there is great interest in the trains and buses, the bridges and stations, people are also important in this gallery. People feature in all my galleries because they are part of the transport scene, but in this gallery particularly they are central, and that is because - at least for part of that time – public transport was a lifeline rather than a lifestyle choice.
