Braystones is a tiny halt on a single-track section of the Cumbrian Coast Line, and was the last stop of our day's travelling as the light gradually faded. The conductor of the last train north wanted to be sure we knew how tiny and remote the place was she was dropping us! Fortunately there was the last train south half an hour later.

On the station's single platform, looking south:

A level crossing crosses the track at the southern end of the station, allowing access to the beach:

The shelter at Braystones faces away from the line and perhaps crucially away from the sea!
