Coxbench station (remains), 1987
View southward, towards Little Eaton Junction and Derby: ex-Midland (Derby) - Little Eaton Junction - Ripley (Amber Valley) line. The station was closed to passengers as long ago as 1/6/30 when the service to Ripley ceased, to goods 6/8/57: the branch remained in use for freight to Ripley until 11/4/63, to Denby until 3/99, thus the track was still in use in 1987 and not lifted until 2011. Note the attractive 'garden' on the platform.
