Notes / additional information

The original northbound ('Down') platform and waiting room at Ribblehead Station (Structure IDs 247220 and 247230 respectively) were demolished shortly after the station's closure to passenger traffic on May 4th, 1970. The removal of these redundant structures allowed the nearby transfer sidings for Ribblehead Quarry to be extended. Following the line's reprieve from closure on April 11th, 1989, passenger traffic steadily increased and the absence of a northbound platform began to cause significant inconvenience for both locals and visitors alike. To address the problem, a new northbound ('Down') platform and adjacent waiting shelter were constructed (Structure IDs 247130 and 247135 respectively) and these opened for passenger traffic on May 28th, 1993.

Structure Location Map

Tips: This structure is located approximnately at the centre of the map below at the pointed end of the red marker. To adjust the scale of the map, either click on the [+] and [-] buttons (if Google has displayed these in the top-left corner of the map) or double-click your mouse buttons anywhere in the map area: left button = [+] = zoom-in, right button = [-] = zoom out). To 'pan' (move) the map, hold-down the left mouse button, then move the mouse. To open an information bubble containing brief details of the structure, left-click on the red marker. Please note that the position of the marker is approximate because Google keeps moving the map (yes, really!).
