LMS Route: Trent Valley Line
Brinklow Station: lnwr_brin1101a
Close up of image 'lnwr_brin1101' showing the rear of
Brinklow station including the horizontal timber cladding and the timber lamp
room located beneath the up platform stairs. The station platforms were lit by
oil lamps as were the signals and therefore facilities were provided at
stations to accommodate the stores and materials required to maintain them.
It's not known whether electric lighting was installed in the main roadside
building prior to closure. The far right track was the 'up slow' relief line
whilst the two lines nearest the camera were the 'down main' and 'up main'
respectively. The signal seen beneath the building is in fact the 'down
starter', positioned for better sighting, on the same post as used for the 'up
main starter' and 'up main home' signals, the latter two arms being hidden by
the station. The signal to the right of the covered steps leading to the down
island platform is the 'up slow' home signal.
