West Meon Tunnel North Portal. The two tunnels, large viaduct at
West Meon and heavy earthworks on the line made for a very expensive failure.

West Meon Station. circa. 1900

West Meon Station looking North. As can be seen from the map above, West Meon was not a very
large place, but it was the largest on the route, so you can imagine the size of the other villages served by the line.
01/11/2014

West Meon Station looking south, the sinal box was on the platform to the left.
The steps in the middle mark the ramped gap in the platforms, an unusual feature of the station.
When the footbridge was removed in 1926 a gap in the platforms was made to provide a boarded crossing for passengers.
01/11/2014

West Meon Station looking south. The line had a very quiet history, not opening untill
1903 and closing to passemgers and freight in 1955 then dismantled the following year apart
from short sections at the north and south of the route that stayed open for freight untill the 1960s

View from the overbridge looking south at West Meon Station. Earlier in 2014
the station site had been largely cleared of undergrowth, why and by whom I do not know.
01/11/2014

West Meon Station looking north, the platforms extended under
the bridge for a short distance, the station would make a superb model.
