The second photo shows the station buildings looking south to Hyde [is that St. Stephens in the background?]
The third shows a diesel going towards Manchester having come from either Macclesfield or Hayfield 
The fourth, from 1948 shows a steam train[pre electrification] from Manchester London Road heading towards Hadfield/Glossop with Adamsons in the background.
The final photo...all that I can say is that it looks ready for the Dr. Beeching axe!
Another excellent account supplied with wonderful photos sent to us by Graham Sharp !
Thank you very much & keep up the great work, Graham. :)
