LMS Route: Rugby to Tamworth
Atherstone Station: lnwr_ath1069b
Close up of image 'lnwr_ath1069' showing the replacement
down platform built in the early 20th century when the line was quadrupled
between Atherstone and Nuneaton. In the distance are wagons in sidings whilst
on the right partially hidden behind the bush is a covered staircase from the
passenger footbridge. This latter arrangement seems bizarre as neither the
footbridge or the up platform's staircase were covered.
