To cheer ourselves up a bit while we are incarcerated by the lockdown, here are some photographs of Stewart Green’s incredible, award-winning model of Southwold Station, circa 1922. Thanks to the generosity of two trustees, the Trust is buying this model from Stewart and will have it on display at Blyth Road once we are able to re-open. I hope I won’t embarrass Stewart too much by noting that he is one of the country’s foremost modellers. The detail on it is just superb and it really captures the atmosphere of the old Southwold Station. Something to look forward to.
On another note, we are trying to put together a new film on the railway. We would like to interview any nonagenarians who travelled on it or remembers the Southwold Railway from when they were children. Please get in touch if you can help us.
Stay well everyone.
