Welcome to the 'New Somerset and Dorset Railway'

As we've dug more and more out at Midford some well preserved relics of the original station have reappeared. This is some of the tiling in the toilets. We are hoping to find the water supply eventually as water will be essential for the rebuilding and of course the station when it reopens, first as an information office and later as a real station with trains!
Stuart and Tom look at the tiling that was in front of the fireplace in the station building. A year ago this was totally buried under rubble and weeds.
The original drainage channels are in excellent condition as the muck and rubble have protected them from the elements. It is a LOT of work digging them out though!
We think this brickwork, found around site, may have belonged to the base of the signalbox. Any ideas out there?
