Once a thriving railway station, now gone to waste, in mores ways than one ... sadly this is not a station to be reclaimed and turned into a beautiful home.

Interesting aside: we have lived here for 17+ years and have never ever seen a train - until yesterday that is, and not as expected at night but in the afternoon. As we drove over the bridge, the engine went under with its two deadly containers following just after we had crossed.

The neglect is evident ! The same sad story in South Africa where it was decided to use road transport instead of rail.

I can tell the work that has gone into this shot by the shadows, which are very well done Carol, fortunately our local one has been resurrected by volunteers and is up and running, often hear the toot toot! as it goes through the tunnel half a mile away, a very well processed shot and good presentation like it, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Sad, Lot to answer for that Beecham bloke given that they have opened loads of stations that were closed as part of his report. Nicely captured Carol

If only, John and Dave, but whilst there is a power station requiring its deadly waste removed, this will not happen. They would rather we had a useless airport catering for up to 2 million ppa to take their money to distant lands, than a useful railway for all the locals and to bring tourists to the beautiful Romney Marshes ... my rant for the day is now over Wink

A well captured image Carol. I agree that the railways have been decimated over the years. As a railwayman myself I have seen the changes and none for the better. I too could rant on about railway management but they like a good witch hunt lol

Many years ago I took a photo of the end of the Ghan line in Maree, SA.
It resembles this picture so much!
Well captured the atmosphere and emptiness.
