Sheffield Park

Footbridge The footbridge is to the original design and the three components now need fixing together.
 
Temporarily assembled and in situ the differences between the original and the present day footbridges are very obvious! Footbridge
 
Footbridge The side view. Who knocked over that milk churn? Hope it is empty!
 
The roadbridge is to the standard details found on the line and is the portal that will lead to the eventual fiddle yard. Roadbridge
 
Three wheelers Meanwhile there is a meeting of three-wheeled vehicles in the car park!

A busier time at Sheffield Park Station. The down goods train hauled by N Class Nº1821 has stopped for water. The up Pullman has stopped to collect passengers.

Footbridge An early morning peace as the ticket collector is waiting for passengers and trains to arrive and an Edwardian lady walks by on the up platform.
