I did a solo visit of gedney station.i arrived early evening took my photos then waited for the sun to set.i liked this place so much that when I took rubex for a tour of Norfolk stuff I took her to this station.the colours are beautiful in here.but it is a very dangerous building with the floor not to stable and the stairs leave a lot to be desired.we then headed off and spotted some stuff an old signal box and some old buildings including the goods shed which was nice.the signal box was not accessible up the top because the steps had been removed

Gedney station was a station based in south Lincolnshire it opened in 1862 and was part of the midland and north joint railway.it shut in 1959.all that survives is the station and two platforms,there was a sign there for the station.but we could not find it.i do wonder what happened to it.

I have been in a lot of rooms.some very photogenic.but this has to be the nicest room I have ever seen.it was perfect.the decay.the colours.the lovely door.and the tree growing up by the fireplace.it was a stunning room just to stand there and look at it.to me this beats any grand staircase.

Postland station was part of the great northern and great eastern joint railway.the line opened in 1867.it ran between Spalding and March.the station is now converted in to a house.the signal box dates from 1882 and still has a 35 lever frame up top.the station finally closed in 1982

I can't argue with your choice of favourite pic from a great set, I liked the one of the rotting armchairs each side of the fireplace, it has a poignant quality, it's one of your best I feel,
I Loved It, Many Thanks

As always your images are amazing. The first shot is a stunner. I Gedney station many moons ago when I lived in South Yorks, it's so nice to see that lovely door has survived unscathed. I had forgotten that toilet cistern!

Don't know how I missed this report first time around. Both these places have been on my 'to do' list a while. After that fantastic report they have just moved up the list...
