Richard Jefferies Halt

From This is Wiltshire:
Visitors to the Miniature Railway at Coate Water could soon see the attraction double in size if a planning application is approved. 
The railway has submitted an application to Swindon Council for the approval of plans to change the use of nearby woodland to provide an extension to the railway and erect a station platform. 
In the application, Hilary Foley, secretary of the North Wilts Model Engineering Society which operates the railway, said: “We have recently been granted the inclusion of extra land within our lease and wish to extend our railway track down towards the Richard Jefferies Museum, effectively doubling the length of ride for passengers and hopefully in time incorporating a station or halt for visitors to the museum.
More about Richard Jefferies and Coate in this guest post.
