About the blog

The blog is about the rebuilding of a layout that was all but abandoned in 2013, its survival is thanks to the kindness of others. A few older posts are included to chart its progress.

Two tatty buildings

The Southern Railway had a penchant for interesting little buildings and this is the down platform at Verwood, Dorset.  The station staff have really made an effort with the potted plants and carefully maintained garden. It disappeared in the mid 60s.

This is a platform shelter from Knightwing, it looks like somewhere that has kept the rain off waiting passengers. The roof is tarpaper painted charcoal black and covered with ground white pepper.
