Over the past five years, I have received many requests at 'Wyenot' for photographs of trains and railway stations in or close to Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire. These have come from people wishing to visit the area as well as train spotting enthusiasts. The railway station in Ross-on-Wye was unfortunately closed due to the 'Beeching Axe,' during the 1960s but, if my memory serves me well, I am pretty sure that I included at least one photograph of the station in the archive section of this site when first building it. (I'll check later and, if I didn't, I'll add one.)

As a result of Mr. Beeching and his 'Axe,' the closest train station to Ross-on-Wye is situated ten miles distant, in Ledbury, Herefordshire. Yesterday, I found myself having to visit Ledbury Train Station and whilst there, I took a look around. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the town has a truly 'Thomas the Tank Engine' type railway station, with a small wooden ticket office and waiting room.
