HYDE NORTH/HYDE JUNCTION.
Prior to 1951, what is now known as Hyde North was Hyde Junction.
It was situated at the junction of the line going south through Hyde and to Hayfield and Macclesfield and the line going to Hadfield and Sheffield with a spur to Glossop, this line was later electrified
but not the line through Hyde.As a passenger station it served only the line going south towards Hyde.
Although named Hyde and situated there [I think] it served the industrial district of Dukinfield rather than Hyde with such companies as Fletcher Miller and Adamsons.
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. :)
