GAUGEMASTER, a well-known model railway supplier in Ford, near Arundel, is working with Sussex Community Rail Partnership (SCRP) and Southern to make its local station a more attractive and interesting place for travellers.
The work has included installation of retro-style advertising boards on the platform and in the waiting room, as well as a large scenic model railway display in one of the waiting rooms.
A USB charging port has been included as part of the model display, allowing passengers to charge electronic devices while they wait.
Stuart Jordan, of Gaugemaster, said: “It’s great that we have been able to work with SCRP and Southern to make the station a better place. As well as our staff and customers, a lot of people have to change trains at Ford, so hopefully our displays will brighten their day – even if they have a long time to wait.”
