At some point in either the late 30s or more unlikely during the war the MR scissors were replaced with a more conventional scissors design as shown in the photo below.
At some time the double slip also was replaced but I don't know when. It could have been after the closure of the coal yard in the old MR shed area.
If I ever get to make a representation of this station, I think I'll go for the LMS scissors and no double slip.
The last photo is from the J W Sutherland collection and can be used if credited. The top one is by L M Hobdey and will be removed if copyright is infringed.
