Now I was always aware of the existence of a Ferry Station on the old Wisbech North - Sutton Bridge branch of the Midland & Great Northern Joint Railway, because I've been a huge fan of that lovely old railway since I was about 13, but I'd never seen a picture of it.
It's just too damned gorgeous to resist, so I won't. It was also only a few miles from where I live now, but I'm sure there'll be nothing left of it, but that ain't going to stop me having a damned good look for it, possibly tomorrow! I know there's a road just outside Wisbech that goes towards the river, called Ferry Lane, so that must be a start.
It's clearly timber framed, on a blue brick footing, nice! Then there's that lovely portico on the platform door. A gent's at the end, which implies a ladies' inside. The platform lamps are just itching to be modelled as is the whole thing. An ash platform too!
The full McCoy.
Stone gate posts, telegraph poles, brick-on-edge at the crossing and could that be a bit of platform garden I see?
This would make a nice thin set-piece, enough for a loco and a 6 wheeler or two. I once made the Hudswell Clark 4-4-0 tank in 4mm when I was a kid. I think it's time for a 7mm scale one, if I can find the drawings somewhere.
