Primary / Secondary References

Figure 86 shows the track layout for Cumwhinton, based upon information from a Midland Railway survey of 1911.

Plate 215 is an elevation view from the south-east of Cumwhinton, circa 1955.  Pictured from the public over bridge, south of the station, it shows a medium-sized building (/scrca/structure-summary/304140), well-maintained, and complete with all freed bargeboards.  The goods facilities here were more in keeping with those provided in smaller stations (/scrca/structure-summary/304210 and  /scrca/structure-summary/304220).  Note the position of the signal box to the north of the station beside the ‘up’ line (/scrca/structure-summary/304240).

Plate 216 is another image from the south but this time the south-west on 16 July 1955 - probably also taken form the public over bridge, south of the station.  Note the poster boards still bearing the legend LMS (some eight years after nationalisation of the railways).  The station closed completely on 5 November 1956.  The signal box can be seen in the distance (/scrca/structure-summary/304240).
