Primary / Secondary References

Plate 146 is a context view from the south from August 1966 of the ‘up’ platform (/scrca/structure-summary/280180) and main station building.  This is the first view on the railway of the No 2 (medium) style of building.  It is constructed of brick with red sandstone, used for the quoins, plinth, and window surrounds.

At the time of the photograph the station was obviously well maintained and has well-tended gardens but by January of the following year (1967) the station was an unstaffed halt until final closure on 4 May 1970. 

Plate 147 is a 1963 view from the south of a small development for the Laporte Chemical Company.  Barytes, produced by the Silverband mine, was carried by aerial rope-way from a crushing plant at the mine to the bunker and hopper located by a new siding to the right of the goods shed. (/scrca/structure-summary/280040) (See Fig. 52).  By the time the photograph was taken the siding had been removed.  The goods shed is for three wagons, as originally planned.

Note the typical S&C location of the loading gauge (/scrca/structure-summary/280030) near the entrance to the goods shed (/scrca/structure-summary/280040); on this occasion an LMS pattern reinforced-concrete posted structure has replaced the Midland variety.

Also note the weigh office (/scrca/structure-summary/280060) and hipped roof platelayers hut (/scrca/structure-summary/280090).

Also in the distance (on the left of the plate) is the main station building and booking office  on the up platform.

Figure 50 shows the track layout for Long Marton based upon information from Midland Railway surveys for 1911 and 1912.

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!).
