I have come to the end of the line. Which way to go? Left into Hadlow Road,straight ahead into the woods, across to the other side of the tracks, or just stand and wait for a train that never arrives? Decisions, decisions :) This was taken by my other half with my 'handed down' Kodak LS420. The colour was not good so I converted it to b/w which seemd to suit it better anyway.~ ~ ~ ~ ~ The Hadlow Road Railway Station near Willaston in Cheshire, England, was opened in 1866 and closed in 1955. It was preserved and restored in the 1970's to give an authentic 1950's look. . . . Thanks for joining me at the end of the track, any comments are most welcome :)

Beautifully done Lynn. Very nostalgic, and the B7W really sets it off. Kudos to you on this one. :o)

You were right on the money with the decision to go with the black and white - that always brings out nostalgis-type pictures the best and the taped edges added to it as well! Very nice !

Some nice contrasts in here. I always wondered what I could frame with the 'taped photo' frame. This one looks like the perfect candidate and it works really well. Kudos to your 'better' half is how the phrase goes, Eve! LOL

You will be led to the knowledge of the internal things which are invisible to you, by the external things which you see before you. . . . Even so then, we can represent to ourselves in thought the Author of all that is, by contemplating and admiring the (visible) things which He has made, and ever brings into being. - Hermes

I agree Eve, I think this looks just fine in B&W. Your "Other Half" did a nice job composing this. What a great job was done with the restoration and may it be preserved like this for a long time to come. It's really quite a charming scene.

Just an old "Grampa" who still has a Kodak "Box" camera kicking around the attic ... learning and enjoying the wonders of modern digital photography.

b/w was the ideal choice for this, Eve. It really sets the "time" of the scene. and...I just knew you had to include flowers...somewhere ;-)
