Snippet Detail

Plate 181 is an elevation view from the north showing Lazonby and Kirkoswald station in 1939. The photographer is standing alongside the extensive cattle pens for eight wagons, provided for the large volume of livestock traffic generated here (/location-summaries/structure-292640).  Although the year is 1939, the station is still in its Midland Railway guise. Note, particularly, the fencing, the tall nameboard, and swan-neck water crane (/location-summaries/structure-292630).  The stationmaster’s house is seen on the left together with the passenger platform (up) (/location-summaries/structure-292580) and the passenger waiting room (up) (/location-summaries/structure-292550).

On the right of the image is the passenger platform (down) (/location-summaries/structure-292570) and the Main Building and Booking Office (/location-summaries/structure-292560).

Figure 71 shows the Lazonby and Kirkoswald track layout from a Midland Railway survey of 1911.
