Kirkby Stephen East Takes Shape

  Thanks to the work of Phil Baines, the buildings in and around the station at Kirkby Stephen East are beginning to take shape now. We present a pictorial update on the station:
An overview of the station looking west
The footbridge down onto the island platform. Note the lift to the left. Way ahead of it's time!
An overall roof gives shelter to east-bound passengers
Looking east through the station. To the left are goods through lines, sidings and the engine shed
That's the main station buildings in place
A view from above the roof towards the engine sheds
The sheds and turntable. Note the unique electric coal gantry
Watering facilities at the west-end of the station site
That concludes our look at the progress at Kirkby Stephen East station. 
  In other news, the Ivatt 4MT has progressed a little, with the tender modeling now almost complete. Here are the latest renders:
