The entrance to the Old Station is garlanded.

The Railway Hotel is in the background looking very different then, as it faced onto Station Way and the Old Station The banner along the front of the hotel reads 'The RAOB welcomes Her Royal Highness&quot'. 'RAOB' stands for the Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffalos, which held meetings at the hotel.
