    The MRS wonder if this is an LNWR station. If so, which one?

    As ever your help would be much appreciated.

    The Signal Box looks LNWR, so that makes it likely it is an LNWR station; or a station on a Joint Railway.

    Sorry, cannot help any further.

    The station is Longton Bridge on the L&YR (former West Lancashire Railway) Southport to Preston line. It is not safe to assume that an ex-LNWR (Type 5) signal cabin necessarily implies an ex-LNWR line, as in the years following the grouping the LMS replaced several ex-LYR cabins with those of ex-LNWR pattern. In this instance the replacement cabin dates from 1926 but was fitted with a 20-lever LYR locking frame. The line closed on September 7th 1964.
