Good photo,that must be the old T.I.C offices on the left of the loco shed. I wonder who the men are, they seem fairly young, so could be still around, and may recognise themselves.

The old workbench that was up in the left hand corner saw more action in later years than it did when the line was open

Yes, The TIC offices were still in really good shape.
Still I think that the developers have done an excellent job of getting some of the old atmosphere into their design.
Just a last thought. Isnt it sad that its a GW loco. The LNWR locos did sterling service for so many years. Hard to believe the line went over 60 years ago
