2010 Railway Garden Competition - Workington

This from the man on the Energy Coast...

May I enter Workington for the 2010 Railway Garden Competition?

The ISS, Northern's station maintenance contractors, have done a bit of "weeding" between the platform's paving slabs - using a strimmer, no weedkiller necessary.

Said weeds were then placed in the station's new Dalek-shaped compost bin (pictured below).

Pity they were told not bother about the bit beyond the railings, which has been left to become part of the West Cumbrian Rainforest.

The old disused shed yard south of the station is even worse than the platforms - the rails, which are still in-situ, have not been visible for some time due to the heavy vegetation and even the six-foot between the operational running lines is full of plant life.
