15 months on from the previous and the railway has started work on installing a platform at the site. 
 
Unfortunately, I had the same problem with this photograph as I did in the previous one in that the sun wasn't quite in the right position (and 35006 facing north didn't help matters).   As this was the last southbound steam service of the day, it was a case of this, or wait for the final diesel-hauled service, which having already spent over an hour at the location, I didn't really feel like doing (I had walked from Toddington). 
 
Quite what a new station will do to the dynamic of the location remains to be seen, since trains will probably be stopping here in future rather than passing through.
