    I'd be quite happy to live here for a bit. What a lovely little station!

    Anyone done the West Highland Way ? There's a bunk house on the platform at Bridge of Orchy, an old waiting room. :cool:

    The NYMR has a cottage and some trains to let, always appear to be booked out far in advance :(
    There is also Petworth station down at the bottom of the country in Sussex.
    Apart from both being booked out well in advance, I believe both are week lets only.

    There used to be a hostel at Corrour Station on that line. Its a restaurant and guesthouse now, food is excellent. No road access - train, or walk. 20 miles...

    E2A: it has accommodation in the old signal box - keep your hands where I can see them, train fans!

    Loch Ossian is the best hostel in that area. Not in midge season though.

    I saw a something being built near Grantown on Spey a few days ago - near the junction with the Tomintoul road.

    It looks like a modern and slightly smaller take on a traditional station, a small platform, two short sections of rail and a pair of old sleeper coaches sitting at the platform.

    eta - It is on the old Cromdale line but this place is a couple of miles short of the real Cromdale Station, which used to host a camping coach,

    Nah, keep the house for yourself, but use the two acres (which I suspect will be a former goods yard) as the base for a few ‘glamping coaches’ to pay the bills.
