The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

Station 3 and pump
Station 3 (Blackbridge) is based on the Hornby Skaledale model (which is the old retained station at Upton Upon Severn in Worcestershire, a station that I know well). I have made a couple of modifications to the model, including adding shutters to the tower windows to keep out the 1/76th scale pigeons.
Station 2's pump is presently on stand-by duties at this one pump station.
