A trip to Parkstone

Hi all.
Hope we all had a great Christmas.
Thought i would have a wonder down to Parkstone station today just to see what was going on.
It turned out to be quite a busy day.

A Class 33 33117 Had just arrived with a goods train from Eastleigh
looking very clean.
Heljan 33 117
(the first actual train to run on Parkstone)
 The 03 No 03 045 had just come up the branch to help out with shunting duties in the very tight yard

 James and his JCB are busy in the yard sorting out the coal delivery's

Then at 2.00pm This arrived 37 222 to take a train back to Poole yard. It was then booked to take a steel train from Hamworthy to Newport.
It's a very misty day, you can just pick out the Purbeck hills in the background

How different Osbourne road looks before all the flats were built

 The waiting room on the down platform is looking very sorry for itself nowadays, I believe soon to be demolished and replaced with a "Bus Shelter" and probably painted red "really !"
