Embo Station

Colour laser photocopy of a man walking along the overgrown platform at Embo. Wooden station building with clock beside him, house in background. On reverse: " Embo railway station with stationmaster's house Sept 1969. Taken shortly before the office building was demolished." Colour is very poor.

Comments:
I don't know who the man is. Along with Archie MacDonald I helped demolish the station around 1969/1970 when I was working on Embo Mains. What a pity, hindsight is a great thing. I recall the solid pine cladding of the Waiting Room and the office. Incidentally I also travelled on the last journey made by the Dornoch Coffee Pot.
