Curran1980 20:19, 21 January 2007 (UTC) REF : Sandy Lane Power Station, which became offices for the Midlands Electricity Board.

Should this not be East Midlands Electricity Board ?

As Coventry was within the EMEB area.

Q? I find no record of a 'Radford Railway Station' on Sandy Lane. I could be mistaken but as I have been updating the Coventry - Nuneaton page I have looked online and can find nothing. There is a record of a goods yard there on an old map I found? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dottorre (talkcontribs) 20:53, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

Where exactly was this railway station?[edit]

"The site of Radford railway station has been developed..."

The only railway station I can find with this name is in Nottingham, not Coventry. Can anybody help explain this minor mystery please? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.29.83.194 (talk) 23:26, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

According to Peter Lee's book Nuneaton, Coventry & Leamington Railway

When the Coventry to Nuneaton line opened, a station was erected next to the Radford Road overbridge. This station does not appear to have opened or if it did it was quickly closed, by the first Ordnance Survey maps in the 1880s the building is shown in plan but not marked as an open station. It does not appear in any of the public timetables in later years. It does show up on the Coventry and Nuneaton track plan as built, clearly marked Radford station, complete with platforms as seen on page 120 in the original plan. The building lasted well over a century, still being there in the 1960s. The station house was demolished and the site cleared.
