Morecambe Promenade: An exterior shot Morecambe Promenade station building in 1992. This image is one of a number taken by Lancaster City Council officers as part of a condition survey of the then still in use station. The poor state of the roof can be seen and this was typical of large parts of the building. Never the less, after the 1994 closure, the building was taken over by the council and renovated and is now an excellent entertainment venue.

Preston: 60163 'Tornado' waits at Preston in the Up & Down Goods Loop to run tender first to Blackpool on 2nd November 2019. The loco had arrived at Preston hauling 'The Illuminati' railtour from Birmingham. The tour continued to Blackpool hauled by a diesel while 60163 ran back to Farington Jct, Lostock Hall Jct and Farington Curve Jct so that it could go tender first to Blackpool and later haul the tour back to Birmingham.

Newtongrange [1st]: A mid-morning train on the Borders Railway about to run south through the site of the first (1904) Newtongrange station in February 2016. The pedestrian footbridge linking Station Road (left) and Old Star Road was built on the site of the original station footbridge. At this point the train is approximately 250 yards short of the current (2015) station.

Cardrona: Once-derelict Cardrona station used to stand in isolation when seen from the A72 but is increasingly being crowded out by housing. There is now a proper village which didn't exist when the station closed in 1962. The trackbed immediately to the west of the station is being built over and the old platelayers' hut (qv) has gone. I am sure Nashy's Coffee House is fine, but it is not a name I would have chosen - even if I were called Nashy.

Morecambe Promenade: The concourse at Morecambe Promenade in 1992, around eighteen months before the line was cut back to the replacement station. In its last years of railway use the building was in very poor condition, hence the pools of water and damp stonework. Nowadays this is The Platform entertainment venue and well maintained by Lancaster City Council [See image 25011].

Lower Edmonton (Low Level): The site of Lower Edmonton (Low Level) station with the still open high level station, now known as Edmonton Green, in the background, on the afternoon of Monday, 12th August 2019. This has been part of London Overground since May 2015; to the right of the bridge the 1872 line curves sharply from north to north-west and originally made a connection with the original 1849 route from Angel Road, closed to passengers in 1939 and to freight in 1964, just beyond the station.

Windermere: Pacer 143611 at Windermere in 1992, six years after this new station opened replacing the old trainshed behind, which was immediately converted into part of a supermarket. Although nowadays associated with South Wales and the West of England these units were originally based at Heaton. This appears to have been a trial run or demo on the Windermere branch - certainly something of a one-off.

Bull Street [Tram]: Midland Metro (since renamed West Midlands Metro) tram no. 26 from Wolverhampton St. George's threading its way through Birmingham city centre on the approach to Bull Street, on 30th January 2016. At this time, Bull Street was the terminus of the new extension into the city which saw trams diverted away from Snow Hill station with a replacement stop on the extension, since renamed St. Chad's.
