I had to look hard at this photo as I thought it had been reversed I don’t remember a footpath at that side of the beck only Glover’s path on the left hand side. But I have been assured that there was a path on that side and of course you can see Liverton Mine in the background,telling it hasn’t been reversed.

Class 101 DMU Saltburn (early 1980s)

Class 101 DMU Saltburn (early 1980s)

This, I think, is when the Zetland Hotel was still a hotel and the lovely Victorian facade of the station, including the canopy was intact. Before expediency destroyed the excursion platform with its beautiful Victorian cupolas and when the station building was still a station building instead of a shopping arcade.

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.”

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.

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!
