More Railway Architecture

Posted: September 14, 2012 by Eibonvale in Rustblind and Silverbright

Ok, I will admit this is rather a personal obsession at the moment – but hey, it’s relevant isn’t it?!  I hope people are enthusiastically writing something for the Eibonvale anthology Rustblind and Silverbright – a collection of stories focussing on the railway – and it never does any harm to keep waffling on about . . . *ahem* to provide a little extra inspiration and focus!  Here’s just a few more photos from my collection to keep the railway glow alive!

In the Wilderness

And one about as far (in concept) as you can get from London. Berney Arms station somewhere in the middle of the Norfolk Broads. You have to request to stop there and it is so small that the train can only open one door – which the conductor had to manually override and open for me. There is no road there and the land is perfectly flat as far as the eye can see in all directions under a perfect hemisphere of sky . . .
