Can anyone think of any closed railway stations/lines with footbridges still in place.

I definitely know that Errol between dundee and perth still has its footbridge still in place

You're asking two different questions. Do you want to know about open stations/ lines with footbridges or closed lines/ stations with footbridges, which seems more likely. If it's the latter then Hammerwich is one example.

It was closed lines/stations with footbridges still in place, another would be Buckie in Moray (or around that area which I forgot the place but seen photos of it)

Would aviemore speyside station count since no trains used the station since 1998 which the preserved line moved to the mainline station?

Between the parallel lines
Madeira Walk, Reigate. Public Byway over disused Silver Sand Siding. Up until last winter, a very, very small section of slab-type track was still visible.

As I read it, there's two questions: closed stations on open lines (of which Errol would be an example) and closed stations on closed lines.

Footpath from Linton to Threshfield crosses the remains of the Grassington branch, over a cutting which has open fields either end of a short stretch of it, you could simply walk round either end......

The disused Seaton Junction has a Southern concrete station footbridge still and another one that carries a footpath over the whole station and remaining single line which I think is still used.

Clachnaharry station footbridge west of Inverness was still in place -and still in use to cross the line- when I was last there in 2013.

That sounds interesting - I hadn't been aware of the site - do you have any further information on it?

I'm fairly sure there is a footbridge over the severed Amlwch branch in Angelsey to the south east of Cefni Reservoir.
