Artist's Description

This scene depicts the Lune Gorge in Cumbria, where both the M6 Motorway and the West Coast Mainline are compacted into the narrow valley together with the River Lune that meanders its way down towards the sea near Lancaster. In this early morning scene, we see a Virgin Trains Class 390 Pendolino winding its way down the valley at speed with a southbound express for London Euston from Glasgow Central.

A shot like this would actually be a great campaign for High Speed 2, showing how a two track mainline leaves much less of an impact than a 4-lane motorway would.
