@Fred_S: Nicely done, Fred! The dark vignette helps draw the eye to the "high alter" of transport (or is that the exit ). The exposure and contrast were perfect for B/W conversion.

Cheers... Brian

Apologies for the late reply, but thanks Brian!
The "high alter" is the central hall, a mixture of old architecture and modern additions

Llandudno, a short branch off the main line ends at this seaside resort.

Decades ago, the station would have been very busy on summer Saturdays as long trains took holidaymakers to and from their week stays at boarding houses, which provided acommodation and meals. The tracks on one side have since been filled in, giving the station a lopsided appearance..


The ticket barriers remain as a decorative feature. The logo superimposes the letters LM&S for London Midland and Scottish, the company that ran operaations here until it was nationalised in 1948. The yellow sign is a warning to beware of snow and ice!

The other end, signal boxes and semaphore signalling are fast disappearing on the modern railway.

Very nice Alan, with the ticket barrier, the LM&S sign and the signal bridge&box it almost looks to be stuck in the 1950's with only a few modern anomalies like the electronic sign and the ice warning decal. Even the dual coloured carriages don't look out of place. Great place also for some heritage steam runs I would think.

Thanks Pieter. The carriages are from an excursion for the weekend Victorian Festival and Transport Extravaganza, normally the station sees only short diesel units.

Thetford, Norfolk, England.

The original station building to the left was built in 1845 by the Norwich & Brandon Railway, parked cars obstructed the view.


The station was extended by the Great Eastern Railway who built this separate booking office. The inscription cut into the brickwork reads "Thetford Station 1889".






The disused signal box.

Thank you Alan!

Very nice set of photos of a historic rail station complex! Nice to see that these beautiful and interesting old building are still standing. Sadly, stations like that here in the USA are often demolished when they outlive their usefulness. The automobile killed rail passenger service in most places in North America Also those dispatch switching towers are a thing of the past. This now usually takes place in a central location where it is probably mostly automated and controlled by computer programs. Thanks for sharing.

Regards,

Kelly
