SHILLINGSTONE STATION 2010
For a brief history, please see the Shillingstone 2008 page.
Since my visit at the end of 2008, the volunteers have installed a length of track from just north of the main platform to about halfway along. This has enabled the diesel shunter to be moved from the bay platform to the new track. This, in turn, has allowed the shunter to move along the track, the first platform movement at the station since it closed in 1966!
The other major work is the rebuilding of the platform retaining wall from the halfway point to the southern end. When complete, the platform can be infilled and resurfaced.
These photos were taken on Sunday 14th February 2010.
