I'll be VERY interested to see this!

Had it been built, it was going to be a single platform with a shelter of some sort, a loop and possibly a siding. I suspect if it had been built, it would have looked - initially at any rate - a bit like Burtonport.

Hi jhb171achill 

My diorama is pretty basic. It is only a  straight line of track

  with a Hornby  buffer but I might add a wooden platform of some sort made from match sticks or balsa wood. [pretty simple] Thanks for the comments

I'd use a stone-faced one - a wooden one wouldn't last long in a god-forsaken location like that!  🙂

Hi jhb171achill 

A stone platform sounds like a great idea and will probably be what i do but i don,t have any plastic stone sheets by  so I will have to do with what I got.

Hi Galteemore 

The loco is a waterford limerick and western railway 0-4-4 tank number 295 brian boru.I bought it at a show in 2018 as i dont like moguls 2-6-0s. It is chasis is a SECR  m7 but the real engine looks like a SECR H class.The real engine was withdrawn in 1952 I think and I dont think It ever went on a midland rail line but I do think one of his sister engines ended her life at broadstone in the 1950s. It looks good with a GSWR carrige and a open wagon.
