HOW many readers remember Pennington railway station?

In 1946-47 I travelled to Manchester from this station with friends as went to the city’s university.

The train went to Kenyon Junction, where we joined the Liverpool to Manchester train.

A feature at the roadside on the bridge approach over the railway was a concrete pillbox.

This had a wooden superstructure designed and painted to resemble a proper signal box.

Now there is no railway, with it having been replaced by the road leading to the East Lancs Road.
