Neston sign

Neston was the day's last station, so we sat in the heat chomping on sweeties from Aldi while waiting for the little diesel train to take us back to Bidston. The station sits on a slight embankment, with brick steps and ramps leading up to platform level and a subway connecting the two sides of the line. This is the front of the station on the platform 2 side, to the east of the line:
