Here can be seen the track plan of Crowfoot Stn. before recent as yet unfinished changes (Nov 17). The trackbed at the bottom half of the photograph has been removed. The green diesel loco is on the goods passing loop that remains in place but the point linking the goods passing loop with the sidings has been removed. The rebuilt sidings will be accessed by a point out of view to the left of this photograph. In front of the diesel and out of shot will be a new siding serving only the engine shed and water/coal facilities.
Buildings in view are the signal box and on the platform the blue painted lamp hut. Planned is a low profile factory against the gravel board at the base of the fence adjacent the far passenger coach. There should also be a station building with loo facilties.
This halt gets changed about more often than most of the rest of the railway. This is an old photograph before the recent burst of growth from surrounding bushes and shrubs.
Future further changes could include the locating of a line of four railway cottages with their rear gardens towards the railway near to the area where the sports cars are parked in this photo.
A strange little place this. Made mainly from scraps of material and built to serve a purpose that wasn't originally envisaged when the line was designed.
The girder bridge crosses what is intended to look like a water fall and waterway passing under it. Slate chippings are used to represent water and while it is not a perfect solution it avoids many disadvantages of having real water to deal with.
The halt is intended to provide access to the water for tourists and anglers bought here by train.
