Hooray! One of the most delightful escapist treats of last year’s first lockdown is back to become one of the most delightful escapist treats of this current lockdown. Every cloud…

Presenter Tim Dunn the jolly railway historian returns, sporting an array of fetching scarves, eager to share his love not just of railways but also of their glorious heritage buildings.

Dunn’s enthusiasm is the bubbling spring that makes Architecture the Railways Built such a delight and when he arrives at the station in Wemyss Bay in the Firth of Clyde he’s swept away by its Edwardian beauty and fanned glass roof. 

Dunn also helps one of the volunteers who keeps the station’s cherished and impressive flower displays in pristine condition.

Further afield we take a look at the approximately 20,000 stunning decorated ceramic tiles that adorn the waiting hall of Sao Bento station in Portugal. 


New series. Tim Dunn visits Weymss Bay Station in Inverclyde and also explores the engineering marvel that is Blackfriars station in central London.
