A Quick Catch Up

Saturday 5th May 2018

The change in working days has thrown the Bloggers into turmoil ! Who is doing what and when, anyway it was my turn on Monday but apologies, I didn't bring my camera, so here is a quick catch up of what occurred on Monday and Friday (without lots of pictures).

Platform 2 was power washed from end to end.
The carpenters continued the construction of wooden litter bins.
A painter was fine painting the lamp posts.
The area between the two new gate posts was filled in and now just requires compacting before slabs can be laid and the area finished off.

Elsewhere the cafe and kitchen were in the final throws of being plastered
which by Friday had been completed. The two rooms were then cleared and soon the carpenters will be able to carry on with the paneling and skirting board. Probably at the same time as the painters paint the ceiling and walls!

The electricians were also on site fitting the station canopy lights, not far away the refurbished signs for the Ladies Room and Gentlemen's toilets also got fitted.

Looking to the north.

Looking to the south.

The lamp also got fitted in the Booking Office, all that is required is the fitting of its cover.

Slowly but surely the little things that will make the station look like a heritage station are beginning to appear!


  1. The Broadway effect is staggering and we shall soon have posters on the Johnsons No.1 buses from Stratford and Campden promoting the new station to tourists and also the link to Moreton in Marsh GWR to attract long weekend breaks from London .

    Look forward to the café and to help out there , john M.

    1. It's easy to think that perhaps going north after Winchcombe in the late 1980's/ early 1990's might have been the more lucrative option, but then we would almost certainly not have achieved the authentic jewel in the crown that Broadway station is becoming!

  2. Paid my first visit to the open Broadway station, having seen it emerge over the years at the open evenings to now see it doing what it was intended to do is very pleasing. The finish and attention to detail is awesome and I look forward to the tea room opening and access to platform 2 over the bridge.
    Well done to all the BAG members present and past :)
