the vision for midford
These two shots are of Hulme End station, on the old Leek and Manifold Railway in Derbyshire. Although this is not connected to an operating railway it really captures the railway atmosphere and serves a very useful purpose as both an information point and a tourist attraction.
One feature is a model of the railway which is certainly something we should consider for Midford - perhaps a representation of the S&D at Midford in the 1950s. Notice the easy to use and non-intrusive window shutters which allow security overnight but keep the place light and airy in the day.
We are still getting a regular flow of donations for Midford which should increase through the summer as the railway press recieve a barrage of press releases and articles from us!
