The old Somerset & Dorset line ~ I used to travel on from Templecombe to Bath now and then, but never did the Southern bit to Bournemouth ~ Remember the Pines Express? Nice shot Graham ~ A Golden Star for memories sake and naturally a brushing of the like button ~ all the best ~ nick

Fantastic pic Graham. The quintessential English country railway station. btw... would I have to pay a shilling royalties to use it as my wallpaper?

thanks Marketa - great to hear from you,,and I like your new portrait thumbnail :)

thanks for that Nick - I was still in Kent, where I grew up, in 1966 - which is when this station closed - but it reminds me of Headcorn, which was our local station, and many along the way - all power to the people restoring the place, and many thanks for your memories and kind words

thank-you MURAT - good to hear from you, and much appreciated

Hi Ian - please feel free (You are becoming an Englishman, aren't you ;D) - all shilling royalties to the restoration group :)

Thanks Neil - I think we caught it at the right time of day - these places were made for gentle light :)

very best regards to all
