I've been looking at some photos of Glossop station and it appears that in the 70s and early 80s, as you entered the station the platforms were on the left (see link below). http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/2925338 However now the trains come in with the platform on the right as you can see below. http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/3173370 I don't understand why they rebuilt the station with the platform on the other side. If they were looking to refurbish it surely it would have been cheaper to simply rebuild the buildings rather than knock down the old shelter, rip up the tracks and re-lay them on the other side (since it appears that although the platform on the other side did still exist it couldn't be accessed due to the large forest growing on the platform.) Can anyone throw any light on why it was rebuilt in this much more expensive fashion when BR were surely looking to save every penny?
