Silecroft sign

Silecroft is on the Cumbrian Coast Line, but was skipped on 2014's station collecting holiday for reasons of time. This did mean we had quite a trek to get down to it the following year, when we were based rather further away. Still, we made it down there to fill in the gap, and found a quiet little village station looking rather neat.

The station has two platforms, which are connected by the level crossing at the southern end of the station:

The level crossing is controlled by this signalbox:
