a possible actual location for a SGW layout

Have a look at
http://www.disused-stations.org.uk/p/po ... ndex.shtml

the track layout given in that link was the original layout but the two turnouts became four when a small loop line was added joining the two lines in the yard, which was actually a quarry, from which the GWR removed quite a lot of stone. This loop is shown in the map of Powerstock in 'Bridport Branch' book and there is also a photo showing sharply curving trackwork.

Whilst the station building must be unique, more like a country cottage than a GWR building there isn't a lot of scope for playing trains :(
The building has long been a private house but the platform was pretty well complete in late 1911 so if still there it should be easy to get dimensions. I think it should easily fit onto a 4' 8" wide board and even in the original state would fit the two turnouts rule.
