Well the good news from Exmoor Associates and Friends of Bratton Fleming Station is that THEY have now put in an offer for the station:

Seemingly accepted, subject to the usual shenanigans.

Bratton Fleming Purchase
POSTED JULY 21, 2020
A quick update …. we met with the agent and vendors on Friday (17 July) and it looks like our offer to buy has been accepted. We are keeping everything crossed.

Now, please!

Tempted, but sticking with UK where I know about the jurisdiction.  Not too worried about getting a bus stop at the station ... but worried about actually getting any buses to call there.

Some of my pix from Facebook ... and with confirmation from one of those core rail folks who is an advocate of better public transport even outside the working week.  Bit of a long way, though

And as a contrast in locations, now up for sale, North Woolwich Station for a million or so.

The Old Station is located on Pier Road, close to its junction with Albert Road. It is situated overlooking the Thames, within a short distance to North Woolwich Pier for use of Woolwich Ferry. North Woolwich is currently undergoing vast regeneration to include a brand new residential development directly opposite the Old Station, as well as a number of mixed use developments nearby.

The Old Station was previously part of the North London Line and before that, the Great Eastern Railway. It was turned into the North Woolwich Old Station Museum in the 1980s and featured a reconstructed 1920s ticket office, plus locomotives, carriages, models and railway memorabilia.
