SCRCA structure 284720: Culgaith Station - Passenger Platform (Up)

SCRCA Location Introduction

The section of 'Up' platform between the road and the WNW end of the main station building was constructed with a stone facing wall beside the track and solid infill behind the facing wall. The rest of the 'Up' platform was constructed with a timber deck on stone supports, with no facing wall beside the tracks. This mixed design was unusual for platforms on the Settle-Carlisle Railway.
