SJ3687 : Dingle Station, Overhead Railway

taken 13 years ago, 3 km from Liverpool, Great Britain

Dingle Station, Overhead Railway
Dingle Station, Overhead Railway
Dingle station on a branchline of the Overhead Railway opened on 21/12/1896 and was closed 30/12/1956, the overhead structure of the railway being dismantled soon after but leaving behind this one station which although the platforms have been demolished, the ticket office and half mile of tunnel still exists today. The Overhead belied its name at this southern terminus, passengers new to Dingle no doubt wondering why they had to descend steps and a subway to gain the platforms of an elevated railway.
