Old SideTracked Blenheim & Woodstock Station
Here is a twist to the phenomenon that is called "SideTracked"
Would have liked to bagged one for myself, but looks as if they have all been nabbed.
So, I've come up with a new concept called "Old SideTracked".
I Wonder if it will take off?
There are certain advantages, like not being run down by a train
or spotted by muggle passengers.
Anyway, here is Blenheim & Woodstock station which was opened in 1890
and finally closed in 1954.
Often wondered if this was a railway station when it was a petrol station.
If you go down the New Road footpath you can see the front of the station.
Notice the "New Road" road sign which is the genuine sign.
My boys love Thomas the Tank Engine and when I hear GWR, which this
line belonged too, I think of the Fat Controller's railway on Island of Sodor.
This is the real thing and it gets the imagination running, thinking back to that
glorious time of steam.
If you like this one you'll love Shipton on Cherwell halt.
