LMS Route: Rugby to Wolverhampton
Hampton in Arden Station: lnwrhia2096
View looking towards Coventry from the up platform of
Hampton in Arden station showing the passenger waiting rooms on both platforms.
In addition to the steps at the Birmingham end of the platforms which led
directly to the station building on the road bridge were two pathways that ran
from the bridge down to both platforms. The pathway for the up platform can be
seen marked with a 'Way Out' sign in British Railways' London Midland Region
corporate livery of Maroon background with straw lettering. Lighting on the
platforms was provided by gas which is why the posts have two short arms on
either side of the post in order to rest the end of the ladder. Each night and
every morning the station porter would be required to manually lite and
extinguish each lamp.
