There's not many railway stations where you can wander at will in and out of the building, locomotives and carriages as well as across the tracks, but this is one that's well worth it for an hour.
The exterior is certainly photogenic, but from the interior of the station house you can really appreciate the fascinating stained glass windows. The beautiful waiting room furniture doesn't look original, but it's in keeping with the ambiance. I've no idea if the particular trains were significant, but they offer a opportunity for a close-up, look, touch, go inside and climb all over a more 'agricultural' form of transport than we are used to now. If you are lucky, you'll find a group on the platform taking wedding pictures and if you're not, you'll be there when a coachload of tourists descend upon the station for a 15 minute 'photo stop'. Either way, it adds to the experience.
For me, this station is really a work in progress, more than an old building, not quite a working museum. The forecourt has been landscaped (after a fashion), the station house has been repainted, there is the ubiquitous gift shop and you can take a short rail trip (I didn't, there weren't the minimum 10 passengers at that time). However, it could be so much more interesting (and worth the price of a small admission fee) if they set up a few cheap glass cabinets with old memorabilia from the station's working era and sold a wider range of relevant souvenirs. Maybe next year?
