When the York and North Midland Railway arrived in York from the south it built a short lived station outside the city walls. This was replaced by a new station inside which was served by a hole punched through the wall.
This is a view of the old station from the city wall. Works are in progress as the council is re-building the station for its new offices. The platform area can be seen but the overall roof has been completely removed, finishing the job started in the 1960s. The line approached from the right.
The site became unsuitable as it was a terminus with little space for expansion and so the current through station was built to replace it. This is out of this view behind the camera.
