Former Gob-y-Deigan Halt

Former Gob-y-Deigan Halt


Peel, United Kingdom (GB)
Gob-y-Diegan halt was a small halt on the Isle of Man. The halt opened 13th July 1887 and the dates for its closure are unknown. The halt was opened by the Isle of Man Railway.

The halt lived a very short life. The halt was located in a very remote area and was only provided by a waiting shelter without a platform. There was also no road access to the halt.

What's left today:
Even though the former trackbed is still clearly visible and still walkable today. Nothing of the halt remains today. All traces have been demolished.

Can I assume that a "halt" is a train stop with a building of some sort?

@jbottero - A halt is a small station that trains don't stop at, unless there are people standing on the platform or someone on the train need to get off there. A usually only has one platform and a small waiting shelter.
