Carnforth railway station is the internationally renowned setting for David Lean's 1945 film Brief Encounter. Access to the mainline platforms was removed under Beeching in the 1970's and the station sadly fell into disrepair.

A dedicated group of volunteers established a trust company to rebuild the station in the mid 1990's and a £1.5m project began, culminating in a grand reopening in 2006.

Although now functional, the station is far from operating at its full potential as a pivotal junction in the region. It can only do so following the reinstatement of the West Coast Mainline platforms.

Carnforth Railway Action Group has formed to achieve this.
