Bridport Station

wanting to find plans of the old station buildings in Bridport, closed 1975 and demolished in 1977, got the book 'The Bridport Railway' but it only has plans of West Bay station building, any help appreciated, or even photo's of the buildings would be great. Would love to model the station in it's final years.

Interesting looking station http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Br...9_23ad74bb.jpg
Describe it as a semi terminus and looking at the photo looks like it did have a single road shed as well. According to Wiki the station building has been relocated to Beer Heights Light Railway at Seaton so the building still exists for your research

Only the platform edging slabs were used at Pecorama (Beer Heights Light Railway), but thanks for trying anyway, I've got the 'Memories of the Bridport Branch' DVD, perhaps I'll just have to look at some 'stills'! Visited the site of the station last summer, not a single brick remains (now used as a road/Co-op carpark in the main sadly)

I'm sure I've seen a layout based on Bridport in a recent Railway Modeller or Model Rail whilst skimming through them in WHS. Could be this month's modeller?

I have some black & white photos at Bridport in 1965, when only one platform was in use.
Can send you copies if you want (one is a bit grainy) - send me an email at bevanprice666@gmail.com if interested.
