Snippet Detail

Plate 198 shows Armathwaite station some 25 years after the opening of the line.  The oil lamps are still on the tall standards, and each lamp carries the station name.  Note the rustic seats with the name painted on the backrest and the angled name board again.  The station closed to passengers from 4 May 1970 after being an unstaffed halt for a number of years.

Visible on the image is the the main building and booking office (/location-summaries/structure-298110), the passenger platform down (/location-summaries/structure-298100),  (and at the far northern end the goods shed (/location-summaries/structure-298230)) and the passenger platform up with the signal box  (/location-summaries/structure-298220) at the far end.
