Warrington Arpley station as seen looking north from the air in 1930. To the north of the station on the far side of the forecourt can be seen the coal yard with wagons stabled in the sidings. The engine shed can be seen to the south with a locomotive just outside.

Looking east from Arpley Junction signal box in the 1950s. A freight train is seen waiting at the junction signals. The signal arms to the right indicate the southbound route towards Walton Old Junction and those to the left indicate the route towards Garston via Widnes. Warrington Arpley station can be seen in the distance.

Looking east from the Slutchers Lane bridge towards Warrington Arpley on 15 February 1970. Some rationalisation had taken place with the removal of the goods yard and the demolition of the station building. Despite the contraction Arpley remains a very busy railway location at this time as the photo clearly illustrates. An eastbound train hauled by an English Electric type 4 (later Class 40) is seen coming off the line from Walton Old Junction whilst in the distance a westbound freight is seen waiting at the junction signals.
