Dilapidation delights me as much as black and white pen sketching so when I found this building sitting in the middle of a paddock south of Nelson, out came the paper, pen, ink and collapsible stool. It's the old Glenhope railway station on the now defunct line from Nelson southward that was planned to connect with Christchurch but never did.
You could still read 'Luggage Room' over a door but I think it was now used by the farmer to store hay and other farming materials.
