.
And why aren’t we carrying on up to Scotland?”
There's not much room left in the Lune Gorge and over the hill and past Penrith for a new line, so what's the alternative?

How much extra capacity would be obtained by reinstating the Nantwich - Market Drayton - Wolverhampton line for freight, avoiding the two line stretch over Madely?
