Plate 196 shows a Class 2P heading an “up” express through Armathwaite station in 1938. The engine is passing over Station Road bridge - No 324 - 298 miles 4 chains. Illustrated here is an example of iron railings on the bridge parapet near to a station platform. The bridge numberplate is a standard LMS fitment.
Almost hidden by the engine is the main building and booking office (/location-summaries/structure-298110) and at the far end of the up platform (/location-summaries/structure-298130) is the Signal box (/location-summaries/structure-298220).
