Sorry you couldnt find the station at sandsend H. It is the uppermost building you will see in the following link. It is hard to visualise now, but a very fine Iron bridge on huge tubular supports spanned this beautiful valley.

Feel free to ask if you require more info,

Cheers,

Jim

The masonry, the chimneys, the window panes, the weather, it's all so beautiful! Yet Ruswarp Station reminds me of a play we performed at high school, called "The ghost train".

Greetings Alan. Talk about unobservant, thats me. I should check my mail more often.

Dear Claus, very few of these wonderful old stations function as intended. Almost all of them were sold off, cheaply, and converted into family homes. The trains, including steam locos, stop here several times a day. I love this building, it truly is, as you say, beautiful. I'm glad it jogged your memory Claus.

Best wishes and cheers.

Oh, and if you want to know anything about SLovakia just ask me :)) Anyway I´m trying to present the beauties of my country through my photos..

Thank you Bibiana--Slovakia is one of those unspoilt countries that were largely unscathed by the terrible events of WW2!! Many of your beautiful cities and towns are very much as they were when originally built!! I have never visited Eastern Europe, but I would very much like to do so.

Perhaps we should exchange places ;>)) You must let me know if you come to the UK ;>)))
