I know where you mean now, the other station was at the top of Station Road/Mellock lane.

Any one got any pics of the other station?

Well i've just looked at this link an i have to say the person who has took the modern photo is wrong.

http://www.subbrit.org.uk/sb-sites/stations/n/neston_south/index.shtml

Where the person has took this photo is down the wrong end of Station Road, on the old photo it shows a bridge which is now Mellock Lane.

http://maps.live.com/default.aspx?v...hscl=1&where1=parkgate&encType=1

As you see Station Road you will see at the junction of Mellock Lane a red patch on the tarmac, this is where the old station was.

Youv'e lost me there Philw, the subbrit link you give is for Neston South Station and your livemaps link is for Parkgate Station. They are at opposite ends of Station Road.

Ahh . got it - Neston South is not as far as Mellock Lane, it is inbetween Bridge Street and Stanley Close which is where the modern gridge is, but there has always been a bridge there, as it says on subbrit, the pillars are original ones.

sorry digging never checked the link,

I can't seem to get the place i want via google or msn, if you google Mellock Lane you will see Station Road. Right where it says Station Road that was where the station was not where it was photographed on the site below.

Gotcha - where Staion Close is.

Got to admit, I always thought it is where the lines crossed. So what is the bridge by the station on both the old photo's. That looks too close to be the lines crossing one, and the curve of the line is in the wrong direction.

Curious!

Mellock Lane was a bridge - here is 1970 after lines ripped up.

Thats the bottom of Station road, under the bridge to the left is one of the enterances to Neston Park, their is another enterance (well small path) near where the train station used to be, you will see on the old photo

On the pic below is a green arrow, thats where the person took the photo. The Red arrow is the small path leading to Stanney Fields.

Haven't seen John Fogg for a long time, about 20 years, I will have to dig him out and nudge him.

Another nice pic Neston lad. The sad bit is that i can remember Neston station as it Is (was) in the picture, the pic ture must have been taken just before it was knocked down as the new pipe can be seen on the left, i feel sure the station was still there in 1970 but it must have gone very soon after that !.
I also have somewhere a picture of my good self taken a little further down the track by the overhead bridge just as the last steam hauled ore train passed over on it's way to Summers steel work.

Now i come to think of it one of my friends Grandfathers was the station master at Parkgate, dont know his name as the Grandfather was on his mothers side, i would have a guess this would have been in the 1930's (ish) i must remember to ask him next time i see my friend.

As i post this i seem to remember that someone told me that there where three railway tank's that where removed from their trucks at parkgate station and put onto plinths, when the track was pulled up they where transported by road and re-plinthed in the Neston North goods yard. I fell sure they where still in the goods yard in the late 1970's.

The picture of the bridge being lifted out made me smile, as I got up early one Sunday morning, to take a video of the new cycleway bridge being lifted in - the circle is close. I'll post it on YouTube next week.
