Title

Marsden Station, LNWR Huddersfied – Manchester Line - DNT00283

Description

Marsden Station like other stations on the LNWR’s Huddersfield Manchester line along the Colne Valley opened with the line in 1849. It was enlarged in the mid-1890s when the line was increased from two to four tracks. It is seen here at an unknown date with a weed ridden island platform and a train headed by a grimy steam loco, seemingly with a BR number, pulling into the Huddersfield direction platform on the slow lines.



The line reverted to double track in the mid-1960s but the station escaped the Beeching axe in 1968 although the buildings were demolished and later replaced with bus stop style shelters.
