Langford & Ulting Photo Gallery 2: Mid 1960s - 2014


Langford & Ulting Station in the mid 1960's. When the line opened it was double track but the second track was removed c1854. It is not known if there was a second platform; there is clearly room for one. For a short period around the turn of the 20th century a signal box stood opposite
the north end of the platform.
