About Silverdale Station
Silverdale was a station on the Stoke to Market Drayton Line. It was opened by the North Staffordshire Railway in 1863 and closed to passengers in 1964.
In its later years, the station was used by staff operating trains to and from the adjacent colliery. For this purpose, a large rail loader was built.
In 2009, the station platforms were restored as part of a footpath to Newcastle-Under-Lyme.
Today, only the restored platforms are still in place. The station building has been rebuilt at the Apedale Heritage Centre.
