Odd modelling idea #999

As I return back to the UK and the depths of Redhill…..

Here’s why there is a red telephone box graveyard between Merstham and Redhill

For most of us who commute by train the journey to work will be a fairly unremarkable one for the most part.

Each day we go through the same tunnels, arrive at the same platforms, pass the same homes.

Except if you travel between Merstham and Redhill your journey does have one memorable moment.

Because by the side of train line is a graveyard for red telephone boxes.

The yard is reported to stock more than 70 red telephone boxes and is one of the largest homes for the much-loved pieces of British history.  Classic red buses are also visible in the yard.

This would make an easy diorama, just needing packs and packs of little phone boxes.
