D.S.E.R. Stations

Recommended Posts

Recently I had a go at attempting to represent a couple of D.S.E.R. stations, Rathnew and Wicklow Mainline. Rathnew was a single platform station with a short siding which was lifted in the early part of the 20th C the station closed in 1964 along with numerous other smaller stations on this route. The station is located in a cutting and the station house is now private, the platform was removed during the installation of the mini ctc. Less than two miles to the east is Wicklow Mainline which is still in use this station has a loop and short PW siding, located just before the bridge over the Vartry river. Unlike, Rathnew station, Wicklow is a fair distance from the town centre and it was opened later than Wicklow Murrough, now long since closed. I will try and improve this work as I go and I'm attempting to develop my skills. Wicklow will be next and I would be glad of any advice for modelling the unusual signal box and footbridge and the lovely old red brick and glass waiting room on the 'up side' which has been closed off to the public for many years - also any ideas on platforms? Thanks for having a look.
