I used to be very interested in model railways. Now that I'm retired and with my term of office as Mayor coming to a close I'm going to start a model railway.
It will be based on a real place , but with a "what might have been" scenario. I plan to model Collywell Bay station at Seaton Sluice, which actually never opened as a station due to World War 1.
I'm hoping to set the model in 1957 (an interesting year for more than one reason ) , but I have very few photos of the area from the days before the hoiusing was built.
Please get in touch if you have any photos of the area from before WW2, and especially if you have any photos of the station area ! I will refund any expenses you incur.
