Blackpool South railway station
Blackpool South railway station
If the cars in this picture carry on forward through the roundabout, the road, Yeadon Way curves off to the left and goes up on to former railway embankment of the direct line from here to Kirkham. On the right in front of the hoardings is one of the former curved platforms of Blackpool South station. The one platform which remains in use is behind the hoarding. Now try and imagine this scene on a summer Sunday afternoon between the wars. A dozen or more excursion trains which brought day trippers here in the morning are sitting in the sidings, gently steaming, waiting to take the trippers back in the evening to various Lancashire mill towns.
