Littleborough Railway Station, Greater Manchester.

Littleborough Railways Station is a 2 platform railway halt serving the town of Littleborough, Greater Manchester. It is the last station before the Summit Tunnel that runs underneath the Pennine hills separating Greater Manchester and West Yorkshire. The station is manned and features 2 staggered platforms, both have disabled access, basic shelters and ticket machines for when the ticket office is closed. The next station stop eastwards is Walsden, and Westward Smithy Bridge.

Littleborough Railway Station opened in July 1839 and was the terminus of the line for traffic on the western side of the Pennines until the Summit Tunnel was opened connecting the line with Yorkshire in 1841. The station once again became a terminus stop when the Summit Tunnel was closed due to a major fire in December 1984, it remained a temporary terminus until the line was reopened through the tunnel in August 1985.

There are a total of 13 pictures I took in and around the station on May 26th 2014 using a Polaroid iS2132 bridge camera. They can be seen here, on Flickr and Clickasnap via the links below.
