Another look around Wemyss Bay Station

I had visited Wemyss Bay Station and taken some photos there with my original digital camera on 23rd August, 2003, and I returned to this architectural gem of a station sometime around March 2004 with the aim of taking some black & white photos of it for my HND photography course.
