Camden Valley Station

Ron Preston captured Camden station before the closure of the line. This photo was used in Byways of Steam 21.
  All of the buildings on the Camden Valley model railway were built from photos published in the books Pansy, the Camden Tram and Byways of Steam 21. Both these books provided many photos that allowed me to create the feeling of Camden in model form.
The station building measurements were calculated by working out the width of doors and walls in the photographs and using a plan book I picked up at a Liverpool exhibition some years ago.
I constructed the building from Evergreen clapboard sheet styrene and used Campbell's doors and windows. The roof is sheet corrugated iron.
