Description:A postcard showing Rushton station and level crossing in 1900.

Until quite recently, level crossings were constantly manned and operated by a conventional swing gate.

The railway no longer serves Rushton. Also gone from these villages is the regular beat of horses' hooves - a trail of manure takes pride of place in this picture-postcard scene.

The station building is now a private dwelling; the Knot Inn behind the station building still provides welcome refreshment for visitors to this stunning area.
