LMS Route: Hampton in Arden to Whitacre
Coleshill (Maxstoke) Station: mrcm175b
Close up of image 'mrcm175' showing the booking office and
waiting room complete with a post box in the gable wall. The two-door 'box'
with sloping roof on the right corner is thought to have housed fire fighting
equipment. Whilst only a handful of one-coach trains, 3rd class only, called at
the station each day the station is well adorned with posters. The purpose of
the pole seen in the foreground is unclear as there are no other poles along
the route when others photographs are viewed. The pole is of the type used for
telegraph lines and has metal steps fixed from a low height. The is a lamppost
is oil lit as would be other lamps used at the station which would be
maintained by the station staff.
