Description:View of Cheadle Station including a steam engine marked No. 12 and passengers waiting on the platform.

Cheadle Station was the terminus of the Cheadle Railway, which was worked by the North Staffordshire Railway.

Cheadle Railway actually became part of the North Staffordshire Railway in 1907.

Cheadle Station was opened in 1901. By 1910 it had a canopy built over the platform.

This area is now part of the Peak District National Park.

About the Engine

The locomotive NSR 2-4-2T No.12 was rebuilt into this form in 1899 and
records show it was renumbered 12A in 1908. A new No.12 was also delivered in 1908 so the photograph was probably taken by then.

Many thanks to Roger Taylor for additional information about this photograph.
