So nice. It looks like an old timey postcaed. MB

Sometimes I wish we still travelled as our grandparents did...

I love railway stations. This one is so pretty.

Rose said...

This is such a good, crisp photograph. I love it...I love railroad depots and always wish I could have one to set up as my quilt studio/reading room.

James said...

This looks perfect in monochrome. Great capture.

This station is simple and looks very cosy, like those ones we can see in old movies! Fabulous shot!

Lovely scene - on my map Uxbridge is a long way from York and Durham!

Dagrun said...

Perfect monochrome subject! Just wonderful.

Martha Z said...

A great choice for a monochrome shot.

I'm guessing that's in Canada? The funny thing is I've just been on a trip to York, but in the UK! :D

Carver said...

That's a charming train station. Looks so well maintained but also old.

SandyCarlson said...

I like that a lot!

This is an interesting railway station, I used to live near Uxbridge in UK - nowhere near York or Durham.

PERBS said...

Good choice in black and white. You done good!

Jacob said...

What an absolutely beautiful old building! I take it this is still in use?

And your photo is picture-perfect; terrific contrast; great whites and tack-sharp!

I'm impressed!

Ellie said...

So much cuteness in such a small building!

A step back in time.

I really like this photo! That station is just perfect for monochrome.

I love everything to do with old railways - it's always nice to see the pretty stations being well looked after :)

Aileni said...

I was utterly thrown for a moment... terrific detour that would make. Terrific image too.

I bet it looks nicer now than it did when in use!

Daryl said...

Oh this is now how I will 'see' British countryside RR stations when I read my mysteries!

Miranda McAfee said...

The Tones!!!! so perfect!

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

Lovely looking building, perfect in B&W.

Bim said...

A very neat station - it reminds me of a poem by Edward Thomas - the first to stanzas always made me laugh:


Yes. I remember Adlestrop—
The name, because one afternoon
Of heat the express-train drew up there
Unwontedly. It was late June.

The steam hissed. Someone cleared his throat.
No one left and no one came
On the bare platform. What I saw
Was Adlestrop—only the name

Magnificent shot of a pretty building!
