Electric trains reversed here and crossed the Greyhound bridge to go to Morecambe.

what are these gantries for if rail lines were not electrified until the 1960s?

The Gantries were for Electric trains that ran from Castle Station to Green Ayre, Morecambe Promenade Station and Heysham Docks. The line was opened on 1 July 1908 and ran until Feb 1951 when steam engines hauled the trains until Aug 53 when Electric took over again. Quite a few experiments were carried out on this line. The Electric trains in 1960 were the Main line conversions and during this time the Ribbleshead Viaduct showed it's worth when trains were diverted during this work.
