Looking north east across Bridge Street, Kirkcudbright, on 22 September 1970. By this time the former terminus had been closed for over 5 years, although the station 'Gents' on the right remained in public service. In the distance are the abandoned locomotive shed and signal box, while the wall of the old goods shed stands on the left. Not long afterwards much of the area was cleared to make way for a housing development, although the station buildings themselves survive in other guises – even the Gents! [See image 25445]

There is little danger of running out of water in the Gents at Romsey, as it has been cunningly located under the old steam engine water tank on the Westbound platform, seen here in May 2011. Notice the blanked off ladder.
