Photo of Bryn station in 1962
Started by: ashtonman01 (63) Report abuse
Came across an interesting photo showing Bryn station dated 1962. Seen a few old photos of the station but have never seen one showing the additional track which used to be on the opposite side of the St Helens/Liverpool direction platform. I've searched in the Bryn album on here but can't find this particular photo anywhere; would've thought someone might have already uploaded it. Link:

It is on the site somewhere. I remember commenting about the gas light.

Jarvo: was this not one of your posts?

The station in the photo looks exactly as it was in my schooldays in the 1940s.Just a few hundred yards up the line towards Garswood it was all open land , so as kids we used to ask the fireman on the steam locos to throw us some coal so we could make a good fire then roast potatoes and turnips which we pinched from the adjoining farmers field.Happy Days.
