    Ty Croes translates to English as "Cross House" and, so far as I can ascertain, is one of only two surviving stations with names directly linked simply to a settlement where two roads crossed. The other survivor is Cross Gates, then just a small village a few miles from Leeds. "Gate", in this sense, is from an old Norse word "gat", meaning "road" or "path".

    Slightly tenuous, I admit.

    I'm not entirely sure it fits in with this as it sounds more about the settlement than the railway:
    but I'm happy to be corrected.

    Hi, this posting is more appropriate for Settlement Association instead of Station Association :smile:

    Continuing from Ty Croes:
    Hawarden Bridge is another TFW served request stop.

    A large clock, manufactured by J. B. Joyce & Co, was originally located centrally on the front of the station, but was moved to the western half of the facade following the construction of the Queen Hotel, which obscured it. Another of the clocks manufactured by the company can be seen at Aberystwyth station.

    There are only three departures a day on weekdays and Saturdays from Widdrington, with no Sunday service. The solitary northbound train runs to Alnmouth and Chathill, whilst the two southbound trains run to Newcastle Central and then onto the Tyne Valley Line. The morning departure terminates at Prudhoe, whilst the evening service runs through to Carlisle.
