Warehouse Wednesday: Modern(ish) station footbridge

Four Oaks Station footbridge

A rather interesting footbridge at Four Oaks station. The concrete pillar is a bit brutalist but topped with a metal set of steps and bridge span. All would be easy to scratch build to suit your site. My suspicion is that this dates from the late 1970s when the cross-city line was inaugurated requiring an upgrade of facilities. 

Looking over the tracks, the station itself is a well-reserved wooden building that has presumably been the recipient of quite a bit of loving care. The design is pure London and North Western railway, the station opened in 1884
