Old SideTracked Bledlow 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 Bledlow Station on what is now the Phoenix Trail which was the
link between Princes Risborough and Oxford.
People live here now and I wonder if they know it was Bledlow Station.
The platform is self evident and the railway tracks embedded
in the road are a dead give away.
The station name plate is now situated at Didcot Railway museum.
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.
