Do you remember Potters Bar's second railway station?

Archive footage showing the rebuilding of Potters Bar train station in 1955 offers a rare view of the town at the time.

First we have a grainy filmĀ from Huntley Film Archives, which shows trains arriving and leaving from the station, with a clear view of the Potters Bar platform signage.

You can see preparation work for the foundations of the new building, and the development of new housing and other buildings to coincide with the redevelopment.

For train enthusiasts, you can see numbers 60021 and 60130, the latter with Pullman carriages in tow, before showing scenes of the finished station.

The second film, from British Pathe, shows the working station from around the same time, including the ticket office and waiting room.

This was Potters Bar's second railway station, and was demolished in either the 1980s or 1990s to be replaced with the one which exists today.

We'd love to hear from anyone who might have been a child when the work was underway.
