LMS Route: Rugby to Tamworth
Tamworth Station: lnwr_tam1744b
Close up of image 'lnwr_tam1744' showing the station
buildings on Tamworth's up platform which was well equipped with passenger
facilities due to the station being an interchange between two major routes.
Passenger facilities in the days of steam - in particular in the late 19th and
early 20th centuries - contrasted well with those of today. In addition to
general waiting rooms ladies only facilities would be available in addition to
first class waiting rooms. Behind the platform building were two sidings and
the connecting line to the MR line which ran from Derby or Birmingham to
Tamworth High Level station.
