the end of the line

On 4th November we took our sales and display stand to the annual Poole & District Model Railway Society exhibition. Unfortunately, a problem with our laptop computer on the day meant we weren’t able to put on the slideshow of ‘then and now’ photos, but otherwise it was a very successful day with lots of interest raised about the Spetisbury Station Project. The star attraction, and winner of the Barry Peacock award for best layout as voted by members of the public, was the superb ‘OO’ gauge model of Bournemouth West station. Sadly now demolished, this was the southern terminus of the Somerset & Dorset railway and trains from the North and The Midlands would have passed through Spetisbury heading south to the seaside at Poole and the end of the line at Bournemouth West.
