Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Calbourne and Shalfleet railway station, was an intermediate station of the Freshwater, Yarmouth and Newport Railway, incorporated in 1860, opened over a ten month period between 1889 and 1889 and closed 65 years later. Situated between the two villages and serving a moderately populous rural area it was a "reasonably" successful station on an ultimately unprofitable line. Originally the station had a cottage style front but after absorption by the Southern a corrugated building from the acrimonious-split era was relocated to the site. The station itself, situated on the down side, has long been demolished and replaced with a modern bungalow; but the level-crossing keeper's cottage, a short distance away at Pounds Lane, is still visitable.show more
