Recent talk of Alton (and model shops that sell things...) made me a little wistful.

If found this on You Tube. I'm not sure whether we've shown this before but I know we've talked about it.



I visited Droxford in about 1969 and was lucky enough to see this.

For those that don't know about this fondly lamented railway:

The Meon valley ran from Alton in Hampshire to Knowle junction in the south where it connected with the main south coast line.

Carl, I remember that original discussion! I think at the time I came up with the link to Droxford on disused-stations.org:

Slightly off topic (but on the same disused line!) here's a link to the details for the station at Wickham:

From looking at Google-maps or similar, you can still see the path the original line took between the two places, albeit heavily wooded in places.

I always take a quick look at the railway bridge in Wickham whenever I drive past it on the A32. I just wish some of these lines could get resurrected, but of course they never will; it would cost too much.
