Sunilaws station, looking south-west in June 2011. Little has changed in ten years; even the right hand gate post is still leaning. The former down platform is seen far left.

Looking south-west along the old railway trackbed at Sunilaws station in June 2011. On the left is the down platform, substantially intact, and behind it are the railway cottages, now with two-storey back additions replacing the single-storey structures seen on earlier photographs. The up platform and stationmaster’s house are seen in the distance. To the right, vegetation is obscuring the coal yard loading bank.

Looking north-east at Sunilaws station in June 2011. On the left of the grassy trackbed is the up platform with the main station buildings, and the goods loading bank is seen to the right. In the distance is the short terrace of railway cottages, with two-storey back additions which have replaced the single-storey structures seen on earlier photographs.

Looking north-east from the former level crossing at Sunilaws station in June 2013. The down platform is to the right of the trackbed and the coal yard loading bank has disappeared under vegetation to the left. The houses are Victorian railway cottages with modern two-storey extensions replacing earlier single-storey back additions. In the foreground, left of centre, a section of rail can be seen embedded in the tarmac.
