Wolverton's Second Station
The second train station was built in 1840 just down the line from the first station. The station was probably the finest of all three stations. It took only about five months to build and had the most wonderful refreshment rooms which had kitchens and cellars in both building either side of the tracks there was also an ice house constructed on the south side of the site.
The up side refreshment room was the first to be built and was 2 stories high the down side building was only 1 story.
It is said that the second station was built because the first one was too small and sited in the wrong place. The station closed in 1880 and the land wasredevelopedas paint shop. The only buildings to survive was the carriage or engine shed which was used by the works as workshops – more on this building to follow. Now in 2011 the only remains of this station is the platform edges and the old office block from the goods yard which is in very poor state like most of the abandoned buildings.
