Delph trains also served Moorgate Halt, situated a few yards before Delph Junction on the Manchester to Leeds main line. Because they were the only trains to call at Moorgate, some sources erroneously show Moorgate Halt as being on the Delph branch.
For a period after closure, the station yard at Delph became home to a small private collection of standard gauge exhibits. In 1975 these comprised of the following:
Hunslet 0 - 6 - 0ST Darfield No. 1 (3783( (built 1953)
Hunslet 0 - 6 - 0ST Brookes No. 1 (2387) (built 1941)
BR Mk 1 bogie coach
Oil tank wagon
Goods brake van
Apparently this modest collection became a target for vandals and the engines were disposed of. I remember visiting the site some years ago, only to find the remains of the Mk1 coach being cut up on-site.
Much of the track bed has now been converted to an attractive cycleway.
