    How about buying the former station house at Betchworth (currently for sale at £255,000)?

    How about Henley in Arden on the North Warwickshire Line as this is the right type of building for the line. If not why not just build a replica of the old one as the foundations are there and the building could be taylored to today use.

    Hi,
    Have you ever looked at some of the station buildings on the ex-GWR main line which ran through Tettenhall, Wombourne, linked up with Baggeridge Colliery and eventually made its way to Stourbridge? There are some amazing buildings along this route. Currently, Tettenhall Station is being used as a nature reserve but why can’t a railway such as the GWSR have it, and then replace the building with a tin shed? There is also original fencing and platform facing here too. Also, Wombourne station is currently being used as a tearoom. Another example of a fine building, going to waste. Why cant both of these buildings be taken down brick-by-brick, and reassembled on the GWSR? At least they would be used for what they were intended for, currently they are wasted where they stand now.

    Please see:

    Then click on ‘Tettenhall’ and ‘Wombourn’. Scroll down to the bottom of each page and click ‘Page 2′. This will take you to some images of the station buildings.

    If it is possible to move these buildings, please do. Like I said, they are wasted in their current position. The GWSR is a fantastic line and I would love someday to see it go all the way to Stratford! I do hope these buildings wont go to waste like Wolverhampton Low Level has.
