Track Layout of Horsted Keynes.



I visited the Bluebell in September 2007, as the idea of building a layout was alreay in my mind, so i went to do some reseach and take various pictures. I finally settled with Horsted Keynes which is in the middle of the 9 mile line. I spent about an hour at the station, taking pictures and generally looking around the station.

Here are some images from the day.
