Dalston station is the last station on the Cumbrian Coast Line before Carlisle, but we ended up spending quite a while there as the first train we intended to catch simply failed to turn up...

On the south side of the line, the entrance to Dalston station is via a passage next to a big industrial building;

Dalston platform 1 entrance

The entrance leads on to platform 1 between the industrial building and a brick shelter:
