Here’s an old image courtesy of Syd Bird showing the old Hoylake railway station. We’ve no idea of the date, but it must have been along time ago!
After a little bit of searching I stumbled upon this informative page about the old Hoylake signal box. The signal box closed in 1994 apparently …I can remember seeing a bloke in there raising and lowering the level crossing gates. I wonder if the signal box is actually used for anything now?
