Dear All

I have been asked to draw your attention to picture 2-9 on this page:


The correspondent say "Picture 2-9 in this sequence has been described as an LNWR station. Looks very much to me as such. Looking very much like the station building at Wansford on the NVR which came from Barrowden on the Peterborough to Northampton LNWR route. Looking at the photograph and the position of the sun the line appears to run east to west. So could it be on the LNWR from Peterborough to Rugby which ran more in that direction?"

Personally I wondered if it was on the Stafford to Shrewsbury line.

All the best

The caption reads "Picture 2-9 This seems to have everyone baffled – the latest suggestion is LNWR (going by the wooden buildings) – possibly Buxton area or (going by the straightness of the line) Goostrey looking north (pre-electrification and pre-Jodrell Bank). I can see the similarities."

There is a photo of Goostrey station ii LMS Lineside Part One, Plate 1/19. The arrangement of the building "panels" is different, as is the canopy support bracket, so it isn't Goostrey.

It also has the look of Bramhall on the Cheadle Hulme to Macclesfield line, looking towards Cheadle Hulme.
My boyhood local station, but last seen 50 years ago, so my memory may be unreliable!

Could it be Gnosall station on the Wellington to Stafford line?


Compare with the earlier photographs of Gnosall station on the staffspasttrack.org'uk web site.

It could! Well done!
