Porter's cabin. Prior to full block working being installed by Saxby & Farmer in 1891 and a new signal box installed (seen in the photo), this timber hut was almost certainly used as the lever shelter, though not in the position seen here.

Yard Office. This remained in situ during the building of the Fairfield estate and was used by the builders as the site office. Demolished early summer 1971.

Installed 1891 at the time the line went over to full block working. Replaced an earlier small hut which was moved to the end of the platform and used by the porters.

Yesterday 1st September 2012 we visited this site to find that The Railway Inn has been demolished and the foundations were in for a replacement residential development.

The three sets of cottages are still in existence with minor alterations.

We visited The Fox PH in Aspenden which I would recommend.

This could possibly be Buntingford, Herfordshire. Clearly a branch line terminus. On the extreme right is a thatched building: this suggests a location south and east of a line say between the Wash and Bristol. There are two locomotives in the shot - one at the head of a train, the other in a siding nearby. They are both tank engines, but not belonging to the Great Western, so that rules out a large swathe of country. They could be London & South Western types, but then again they could be Great Eastern. I checked Huntstanton, Hadleigh, Framlingham, Eye and Aldeburgh - none fitted. Malthouses etc. Then I looked at Buntingford in Hertfordshire and most of the elements appear to match. The houses in the foreground, the roads, the station layout and river. Try Old Maps web site with co-ordinates 536500 and 228630 and see if you agree. MB

Buntingford is in Hertfordshire, at the end of an ex Great Eastern railway branch line from St. Margarets near Hertford it'self. It ran via Mardock, Widford, Hadham, Standon, Braughing and Westmill.

Thanks for all the helpful corroborative information everyone, it means that we can update teh catalogue for this image, and will post the correct location data here in due course. Great job.



I think I've been in The Fox in Aspenden myself, although a long time ago...glad to know it makes a good visit Class 31!

Buntingford, Herts - a possible candidate.

The station building appears to match too - see

Definitely Buntingford.

I have been able to identify cottages in London Road and Aspenden Road which are present today.

Well done MB
