Market Weighton Station YFA
If you follow this link you will be an absolutely wonderful piece of film. It's what was once an everyday scene up and down the country, one which a preserved railway can never truly recreate.
Whilst some preserved stations do a very good job of the actual appearance of how things used to be, heritage railways often see any siding used to store stock which means that many stations have a feeling of being 'full'. But if you watch the film, the openess, almost emptyness, is quite noticeable. And everything is happening for a purpose, nothing is for demonstration purposes. It's a very normal scene, one which has gone completely now.
