At Newton Station Again


Last week I showed you the Ins and Outs at Newton for Hyde station.

Access on the opposite side is via footpaths from Victoria Street or Danby Road.


This view is from the Glossop-bound platform looking back towards the Victoria Street bridge. It is the opposite view to the one I posted last month looking down on Newton Station.

To see this same view as it looked twenty years ago, visit Old Hyde.

Hello dear Gerald!
Fabulous perspective!
In the first shot we can see those lovely houses on the background of the picture.Great composition!
This station is clean and well preserved.
Kind regards

It is hard to believe but we, here in Ohio, have just now started to rethink the idea of tearing out the older railroads and sell the rails for scrap and the cross ties for who knows what. And our governor is in Washington DC trying to get some funds to begin the construction of high speed rail lines. The old right-a-ways are given back and it all begins from scratch. It is the way of the politician in this country. You are way ahead of us but this is about where we were when somebody had the brilliant idea to use cars, trucks, busses and walking and get rid of the trains.

See: Our Flower Pot.

Something eerie about an empty station.... I am sure if you stood really still you would hear the feet and the hum of people...
