Date:30th of August 1988

Description:A sand train passes Wall Grange in Summer 1988.

This was the last commercial train to use this line. Some special passenger trains have been run from Stoke to Leekbrook, and the line may well open again in the future as a preserved line.

Wall Grange was important because it had a large Victorian waterworks close to the station.

The station (pictured) is now a private dwelling; the "up" platform is just visable in front and to the left of the train.
