Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Banks railway station was on the West Lancashire Railway in England. It served the village of Banks near Southport. The station opened, along with the line, on 19 February 1878. On that day, the first passenger train was greeted at Banks by "simple songs" from the Church School children. The vicar of Banks, a passenger on the train, rewarded them with a "shower of coppers." The station had a depot in its goods yard for coal merchants in Banks. Along the track, towards Preston, the first crossing was at Long Lane. The crossing keeper who opened the gates for farmers and anyone else wanting to take vehicles or cows across had a house provided with their job.
