SCRCA structure 288270: Langwathby Station - Waiting Room (Up)

SCRCA Location Introduction

The current timber & glass waiting shelter on the 'Up' platform of Langwathby Station was constructed during the first half of 1998 and officially opened on 1st May 1998. It is similar in design and materials to the original Midland Railway structure that stood on the same site. However, to reduce both construction and operating costs, the current structure is shorter than the original (i.e. it is 'three-bay' rather than 'five-bay'). FoSCL has a long-term lease on this structure and is responsible for its ongoing maintenance.
