On the right tracks

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

AS a re­cent con­vert to your ex­cel­lent mag­a­zine and as a mem­ber of the Sal­is­bury and South Wilts Rail­way So­ci­ety, I was de­lighted to see The Ja­co­bite steam lo­co­mo­tive on the front cover. Al­though I can’t claim that Sal­is­bury might be considered to fit your head­line de­scrip­tion of Bri­tain’s best sta­tions, we are told that a new sta­tion is to be built at Wil­ton, per­haps by 2020— a some­what sur­pris­ing turn of events post-beech­ing. Can we hope that it might at least be de­signed with some­thing of ar­chi­tec­tural sig­nif­i­cance that fu­ture con­ser­va­tion­ists will be keen to pre­serve and that we rail­way en­thu­si­asts and mod­ellers will be keen to em­u­late?
