Could be quite an undertaking. :roll:

Presume you mean Brookwood station and the short branch into the cemetery. Stock would need to be LSWR or SR, not much LSWR available in 00 even less in N.

No complaints about not being dead on time for departure or arrival.

The coffins could travel first class or second class. Although the fares were higher than for the accompanying mourners. Cheapskate mourners would travel in first, the coffin went in second.

Only railway I know of that never increased the passenger fares (dead or alive). Ham sandwiches, fairy cakes, and beer at the 2 stations (Anglican, Others) for the living after the funeral.

I suspect it was deathly silent at the London station end, a lot more lively at the Brookwood stations and on the way back after the wake.

The death of the line came in 1941 when the London terminus was destroyed by German bombs. The entrance facade was still there in 2016.

Deathly boring operations for a model layout though, only one train a day, there and back. 

Definitely a slice of Victorian macabre.

I actually thought that it would be a unique opportunity to make something completely different.  It's a short point to point - albeit travelling on some public lines.

I'm a bit besotted by Chris Tarrant and Michael Portillo at the moment.  :lol:

My Father was brought up on Bisely Common during the 1930's, just a short walk from Brookwood and the cemetary. If the family fancied an afternoon out and a healthy walk they would often head to the tea room at the Cemetary Station where the best quality and cheapest cream teas in the area were served.
On a sunny afternoon the tea rooms would be full with Brookwood locals all having a wonderful time and an excellent cream tea.
Should a funeral train pull into the station the doors would be closed and the curtains drawn. The locals would then maintain a discrete silence.
There was clear glass window above the curtains and my Father recalled the sight of the Chief Mourners top hat passing the upper windows followed by the coffin atop the pall bearers shoulders.
A local would then be dispatched to keep watch and once the funeral parties were a suitable distance away heading towards their resoective plot in the vast cemetary a signal would be given. The doors would then be flung open and the curtains drawn and normal service to the locals would be resumed.
