Coal A Halt

This little station is called Coneyvale Halt and it serves a nearby village as well as workers and trains going to and from the coal depot. The occasional walker might also alight here to begin a pleasant ramble down in the valley.
We had always wanted to include a halt on the main line so as to provide another station for stopping trains to call at and here seemed an ideal location.
We tried to erect a footbridge but this just did not look right and seemed to be out of scale with the adjacent viaduct. So, we abandoned that idea and will now install a crossing for passengers to, carefully, traverse from one platform to the other.
The station signs were only put up at the weekend and there is still a little bit of work to be done here before it is considered finished and we can then add a passenger or two.
