This Station was always a bit of a strange station. It was like a country station in the middle of London. Only feet away from one of London busiest stations. Up trains only used this side of the station and came out of one tunnel only to punch back into another. Its other half was on the other side of the main station and both half's must have been run as two stations?
 
 
I took only a few pictures of this station (did any one?) as there was always something better only feet away.

York Road station closed around 1976 it was used by up trains only from Finsbury Park station which then when underground and used the York Road Curve and City Widening Lines to Farringdon.
 
Down trains used the other side of the station coming up way of The Hotel Curve and using platform 16 at Kings Cross which was renumbered 14 at some time
