Often over the years visitors have looked with doubt when I have explained how the Nene Floods around Orton Mere. Here are a few pictures from April 1998, regretfully I don’t know the copyright info. If you do please let me know.
Very simple but very collectable.
Part of the Barnwell building on platform 2 houses the Station Masters office.
This has been refurbished in recent years, and here are some pictures of how it looks today.
Should you visit Wansford then take a look at this office, well worth the visit to see what can be achieved on a refurbishment with some effort.
A few months ago we published pictures of the inside of Wansford Signal Box. So now it’s the turn of the Orton Mere Signal Box.
Now I know it’s not very large, and I still remember when we had the allotment at the station a visitor asking me if it was a potting shed.
So here are some internal shots of the box.

I am sure that every volunteer and visitor knows the Old Station Building at Wansford.
But we rarely get a good look at it, as often there are carriages in either or both of the main platforms.
So here is an old picture I came across in my misc collection. It shows the building some years ago.
I hope that at some stage the railway will be able to restore this fine victorian building to its original state. It’s an asset to the railway.
Should you wish to donate to it’s renovation then please contact the office.
A blast from the past here.

Well the blog was one year old yesterday. How time flies.
My thanks to all who have contributed in the first year and keep eye out for more stuff in the coming 12 months.
A few people have asked me if I could post some pictures of tickets.
So here just or you are a few tickets.
