I know its not Saving Moor St Station as the title suggests, but no harm done.

Hello again Townie
Keep the pictures coming. The coal hopper has broken down so you will have to fill the tender by hand.

Best wishes...Diggory

Thanks to all who helped save Moor Street Station. I remembet it well from my days in the 50's when trains from the North Warwicks Line would terminate there.

The fascinating thing to a young boy like me was the traverser that would move the engine from one platform header to another to allow it to run around its carriages. Although the workings have gone, the space under the platform's still there which was required for the traversing platform to move sideways. The operator would stand at the end of the platform.
