The Bisley Station, a new carriage for Lloyds Bank Rifle Club

A railway branch line ran from Brookwood to the National Rifle Association [NRA] camp at Bisley from 1890’s till 1952. The station buildings remain, and are occupied as the club house of Lloyds Bank Rifle Club.

I visited Bisley camp this week and in passing the old station noticed a different sleeping carriage alongside the station building. Enquiring of the NRA staff, who were refurbishing the station, as to when the new railway sleeping carriage had arrived, they replied it had arrived only a few weeks ago, and with much difficulty too.

While in the total scheme of things this is not the most noteworthy happening, these sort of things are in my small world. So, here are some photos of the before and after, with firstly a 1952 photo of the Bisley Bullet train alongside the station.
