according to "Peterborough's First Railway" by P J Waszak et al, Woodston transfer shed was simply a wooden transfer shed about 20' x 12' in size. Has anyone had any thoughts about what that shed might have looked like in the early 1850's? I have an idea for a small ECR/LNWR layout set on that stretch of line.

Hi Geoff,

There are a number of enteries on the Drawings Database for goods sheds, but I cant find one for Woodston. There is one for Peterborough listed which is dated 1874 which may give some idea?

DBLDG251 LNWR. Blisworth & Peterborough. Peterborough Goods Shed. Plans and elevations. 12/12/1874.
Linen backed coloured. 8ft:1in G 1874/12/12

Best

David

The only LNWR Goods facility in Peterborough (itself) was at Woodston Wharf. Therefore the drawing DBLDG 251 must refer to this.

Longville, Caster and Overton were separate places which did not count as "Peterborough"!
