- Etwall railway station
From Mickleover the line dropped at about 1 in 110 towards Etwall.
The station was very close to the village, being adjacent to the
Uttoxeterroad which crossed the line by a steeply sloped bridge. It was provided with substantial brick buildings similar to others on the line; a two-storey station master's house and the usual single storey offices on the platform, with a small timber waiting room on the other.
Regular passenger traffic finished in 1939, although it saw excursions until 1963, and it closed in the following year.
The line from Friargate remained open for some years, being used as a test track by the
British Rail Research Division. After public services finished, the stationmaster continued to live in the house. The goods yard was sold to an agricultural engineering company who later bought the house and demolished it 1987-8.
