At some point in either the late 30s or more unlikely during the war the MR scissors were replaced with a more conventional scissors design as shown in the photo below.

At some time the double slip also was replaced but I don't know when. It could have been after the closure of the coal yard in the old MR shed area.

If I ever get to make a representation of this station, I think I'll go for the LMS scissors and no double slip.

 

The last photo is from the J W Sutherland collection and can be used if credited. The top one is by L M Hobdey and will be removed if copyright is infringed.

Its unfortunate that the only large scale OS maps of Buxton appear to be 1922 and the 1960s. Basing your model on the late LMS track plan or later would get rid of some nasty pointwork in the goods yard and loco shed area too.

Yes, I don't want a slavish copy of Buxton MR just a model that gives a representation of an MR terminus station in a confined space.

There were very few compact Midland main line termini. The original station at Gloucester is the only other one that immediately springs to mind, though with substantial sidings and other appendages attached.
