The new station is now north of the footbridge, on the site of the goods yard.

The location of the signal box was where the track side cabinets are located to the right of the track just above the bridge parapet in the photograph above. I am grateful to Chris Littleworth to be able to reproduce his signal box diagram for Walsden below. This shows that by this time the 'East Cabin' had been taken away, leaving just the bridge of that name to record its location. In earlier times the banker at Stansfied Hall would be given time out mid-morning to pop up to Walsden to work the yard. Exactly how Walsden yard was worked after the removal of the East Cabin is unknown, as running round the train via the Goods Shed seems unlikely.
