About the blog

For the past forty-odd years I have pursued an interest in the Railways of Germany however as the end of the line beckons, I have returned to the railway that has always run past my home - the Southern.

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.
