Plate 181 is an elevation view from the north showing Lazonby and Kirkoswald station in 1939. The photographer is standing alongside the extensive cattle pens for eight wagons, provided for the large volume of livestock traffic generated here (/scrca/structure-summary/292640).  Although the year is 1939, the station is still in its Midland Railway guise. Note, particularly, the fencing, the tall nameboard, and swan-neck water column (/scrca/structure-summary/292630).  The stationmaster’s house (/scrca/structure-summary/292590) is seen on the left together with the passenger platform (up) (/scrca/structure-summary/292580) and the passenger waiting room (up) (/scrca/structure-summary/292550).

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!).
