Primary / Secondary References

Figure 40 shows the track layout for Kirkby Stephen station, based upon information from Midland Railway surveys in 1911 and 1912.

Figure 41 is a signalling diagram for Kirkby Stephen, based upon information available for 1963.

Plate 115 is a June 1967 view looking south taken from the end of the down platform showing the signal box (SCRCA structure ID 266480) and goods shed (SCRCA structure ID 266410).  The Lie-by Siding (down) is seen on the right of the image running to the buffer stop.  A five wagon shed was proposed in 1872 together with a cattle dock for ten wagons (much livestock movement was obviously anticipated) (SCRCA structure ref 266520). Goods facilities had ceased on 28 September 1964.  Note the differences in the Midland and BR notices.

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!).
