    Junction Road Halt had a siding, on the other side of Junction Road from the platform.
    Not sure if Salehurst had a siding.

    For all those that haven't heard, the RVR has just extended again! This weekend, track was laid from just short of Northbridge Street back to the RVR base at Robertsbridge. This is the section that encompasses all 5 bridges, and is another statement of intent from a very determined group! 12 RVR Railway News should link to their blog, showing photos of the progress.

    This is an amazing achievement for such a small group.

    Earlier this week i was passing Robertsbridge and decided to drop off at north street , its very strange, one side of the road is the newly laid track and across the other the abandoned bridge over the river and onward towards the A21, i would assume that these bits of track bed are yet to be purchased the other side of the A21 you can see a railway bridge fenced off in the middle of a field it all looks very strange , the work done so far looks very good, i walked along the footpath right up to bridge 1, and it was easy to imagine a terrier storming round that bend going towards tenerden , there are several very promissing photographic locations , the cricket field being one of them that should once opened, attract people and they are all walking distance from the station this is one new extension that looks very promissing
