Hooton station buildings
The covered foot bridge at Hooton station
Great pics as usual. Thought the first one was Birkenhead North, till I had a second look.
Reckon you're showing off now Joe with that fancy steed.
Now that's how train stations should look. Not like half of the ones over this side of the water.
Won't be long before they all end up modernised for 'improvements' sake
Reckon it's to do with budgets. They gotta spend it on something. So they look for things that cause the least offence. Then we all shout cos we found it better untouched. Sometimes a lick of paint works wonders.
The Green Lane station buildings
The footbridge at Green Lane Station,notice the arched brick work
The track at Green Lane the shadows are caused by the space between the girders half filled by arched brick work and the rest by wire netting
Green lane platforms,I like the hanging gardens on the walls
The Walls look more like castle walls than a station,an old name on the station nameplate,For Lairdside
Great them Joe. Has that station had a clean up lately? Last time I was there it was dreadful. It looks great now.
Just how I remember it, had quite a few years getting on and off there. Think I've posted it before, but oh well. This is the only pic I ever took there.
There's loads of broken off girders in the walls, I've always wondered what it used to look like. Did the line on the the bridge by there, have a station here too ?

Nice photos Kebabman. I've not seen those freezes on the walls before.

Hi Smurf - no it didn't, as far as I know the next station on the Old BJ/GWR line was at Rock Ferry
Thanks Chris, that's the sort of info I was after
Oh, and sadly, the fine footbridge at Hooton has been demolished: vandals.
