Two sets of pictures that show the incredible transformation at Midford. The top two I took on 15 September 2010 which was the very first day of operations at the site, the first day of the restoration of the whole line.
The second set of shots show Midford on Sunday with the platform and bank cleared, as well as the retaining wall that was behind the station building. (Both pics © Stuart Seale).
There's still a lot of clearance work to do both at the station and along the trackbed up to the Long Arch bridge so please try to turn up on a Sunday if you can. The blistering pace of the clearance has been very impressive and we are much much further along than I thought we would be on that warm day back in September!
