Berney Arms Railway Station (Page 2 of 2)

Berney Arms station has actually seen some investment during 2003 and 2004, including the installation of a small shelter to keep out of the rain (or the sun!) and the erection of a new sign which is very similar in style to the original Great Eastern one which was removed in the 1990s after many years service.

Further pictures of the station at Berney Arms along with a brief history can be found on the first page.

    Berney Arms facilities
Station sign, shelter and information point all crowd together on the platform. The small shelter has just enough room for three or four people and no doubt will be welcome on a wet day as there is nothing else around.
