Beamish Railway Station 3/5

Beamish - The Living Museum Of The North - Part 2

Looking back from yesterdays picture this is a view of Rowley Station at Beamish together with the Goods Shed on the left. The station was the first relocated building to be opened at the museum and was officially unveiled by Sir John Betjeman in 1976. Dominating the station at the back of the picture is the large building externally presented as Beamish Waggon and Iron Works, established in 1857. The real purposes of the building is as the Regional Museums Store, completed in 2002, which Beamish shares with Tyne and Wear Museums. On the inset picture you can just make out Maureen sitting quietly enjoying what was a lovely sunny afternoon, as well as on the main picture.

It's a little playground Brian.

What a stunning museum!
Brian Walbey: It covers such a wide area, with several distinct parts to it, that to really do it justice I feel a two day visit is essential, especially for we photographers.
Gosh it does look like a beautiful day!
Brian Walbey: It was a lovely mid-June day, we were so lucky.

J'aime bien cette petite gare au milieu de la verdure.
Brian Walbey: And to think all the buildings have been brought in from elsewhere and rebuilt.
Oh, yes. I see Maureen in both images, thoroughly enjoying your romp in the sun, Brian. smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie. In English terminology the down-market newspapers use the word 'romp' to describe, shall we say, certain activities, I can assure you we behaved ourselves, very much as we older folks do smile

It's not often you see a garden in modern railway stations, but there is one near here at Bradford-on-Avon
Brian Walbey: Back in the old days most village and small town stations had gardens, all proudly tended by the station staff between trains.

A well- maintained station- the garden belongs to this old Railway Station like in our country.

Ah yes, I can spot your good lady enjoying the sunshine. I'm definitely going to have fit in a visit there at some point.
Brian Walbey: She enjoyed the sun while I took photos, we did not 'romp in the sun' as Ginnie suggested, a difference in the meaning of a certain word between nations I suspect smile
I have spotted the supermodel smile
Brian Walbey: She's enjoying the sun while I worked myself daft taking as many photos as I could in the time available.
All neat and tidy.
Brian Walbey: The whole place is very well looked after Mary.

It looks really well cared for, a lovely place for a day trip.
Brian Walbey: The whole place is very well looked after Anne. To really do it justice I feel a two day visit is essential, especially for we photographers.
it looks a bit confusing Brian but i can sort it all out...
Frank is into locomotives today as well....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter. I would just love to see those big locos and trains for real, I guess you have similar in parts of Canada.

Lucky for you, Maureen understands being a photographer. When I go birding with the camera, I do it alone smile These old places cries for HDR versions. Not to make it surreal, but to enhance detail - maybe just tonemapping of a single picture. It remains a great picture, with lots of aspects that holds attention.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Louis. I might try a single image HDR with it when time allows. Maureen does do a bit of photography herself but purely for her pleasure although before our first child was born she was very keen and used to come to my local camera club with me. I published a series of her photos from that time a while back, I will send you a link to them separately.
