Saltburn Station

Saltburn Station

Looking towards the east,  1971/3 the date when this photo was taken, it was a lovely station as most of them were, what a pity such a lot of them were demolished.

Russ Pigott advises us : ”This picture is later than 1960 I would say about 71-73 The track into the trainshed was closed in 1970 and the sleepers are still present. Also the poster has a mk2 inter-city coach on it which were not introduced until 1966.”

Zetland 1958

Yes another photo of Saltburn station this time looking towards the Zetland Hotel where the trains could pull right into the hotel. The celebrities could enter the hotel without being seen by the public.

Named Loftus Viaduct on this card, but still the same one, not completely filled in yet. The note on the back is dated December 8th, 1911.

Thanks to Keith Bennison and Beryl Morris for the card which is another in the Penny Real Photo Series from Wm. Richardson & Sons, Loftus.

Blakey Station

Blakey Station

A rather cold and lonely spot where was Blakey station?

Russ Pigott tells us: ”Blakey station was near where the Farndale road turns off the ‘Blakey Road’ There is still the wall of one side of the bridge which took the road over the railway. The ‘station’ was the junction where the Rosedale East and West Branches seperated. Nothing now remains of the buildings on the site.”

Thank you for that Russ I was hoping no one would say Blakey or wrists would have had to have been smacked!

Cragg Hall 1972

Cragg Hall 1972

14 years on and quite a few differences from the previous photo of Cragg Hall, judging by Russell Pigott’s comment: ”Its a lot later than 1972 I reckon summer 1987, If you blow the picture up it seems to be me in the secondman’s seat! We got the 20s late 1986 if remember right and I did my driver training in 1988. It may not be me in the picture so it could date it as late as 1990”

Many thnaks to Russ Pigott for the probable date of the image.

Brotton

Brotton

Looking south 24th February 1973, or Brotton station as it used to be. Do you remember it like this?

William Horner tells us: ”yes I remember it well, I used to to go to the station to get the fish for my mother who had the fish shop in Jackson Street and Mr Mattson was the porter at the station”.

Thanks to William Horner for that update.
