Appleby Junction was constructed to link the Settle Carlisle Railway (SCR) with the North Eastern Railway (NER) Company's route between Darlington and Penrith (via Appleby East and Kirkby Stephen East). The track on the former NER route has long since been lifted, but the SCR half of the 'junction' still provides access to the engineering yard sidings. These allow northbound SCR trains to be terminated and reversed at Appleby should the need arise.
