NO NEED TO SHOUT! Don't know how helpful it'll be but have you looked at didcot's to exchange shed? Is there anything on the WSR that fits?; that was broad gauge initially.

Can you post one of your pictures, or point to one on-line. I have the combined volumes edition of GWR branch line termini. It has photos and drawings of the structures at a dozen or so stations. If I can identify the style you want I'll scan the photos and drawings and email them to you.

Read up on the principal of fair use. The copying of part, say a chapter for a specific purpose is covered by the principal of fair usage. If a teacher wants a class to discuss a particular passage from a book, but not to read the whole thing then it's a legitimate fair use to make 30 odd copies of the passage. If it's something that is done regularly then the institution, (school, college, uni etc) keeps a register of such copying for inspection by the Copyright agencies to check, to ensure the facility is not being abused. I've signed the register a fair few times, copying the character set table from a printer manual, when I stepped in to do the bit about printers on computer literacy courses.

The main part of the building has been listed, so it still stands today.party of the building has been demolished. It is an impressive structure in size. I remember it in use in the 1980's and I photographed two class 08's both in use at the time on the lines near the goods shed and a class 37 passing on the main line. I'm not sure if it is a Brunel structure for sure or not. The line was originally made by the South Wales Railway which Brunel had some input. (I'm not sure if this would have been Brunel senior or Brunel junior. (Both were designers and did some major work. The man we see in the famous picture is Brunel junior). The Great Western Railway soon took over. I am not sure when the goods shed was built. Somewhere I have track diagrams but most of these date from around the 1870's to 1880's so are not that early. The line was built around the 1850's.
The building at Llanelly was built from dressed stone of impressive size and has a slate roof.

Hi Traintwee the drawings that I know I've got are for

Abbotsbury
Ashburton
Hemyock
Moretonhampstead
Princetown
Fairford
Lambourne
Tetbury
Wallingford
Wattlington

Having had a look I wouldn't say any of them are typically Brunelian, they mainly appear to be Swindon identikit jobs, farmed out to local contractors. Any other suggestions that come up I'll have a scan to see if I can find additional pictures or plans.
I have so many books in there that once I start looking I'm lost to the world for hours. We no longer have a supply of students looking for IT/Computing projects. Scanning the index of all those books and combining them into one database would be just what's required. The recent Dept.of Ed kneejerk reaction has just about killed off an assessed practical task, and I'm not proposing to do it myself, and I'll say no more about the Dept foe Ed beforeI I get political.
