The small Samuel Taylor lamp hut came from Teignbridge Crossing and the Joseph Ash hut stood above the well here at Christow.
The Pumphouse is to be the annex of the exhibition for those items not needing to be kept warm and dry.
The explanatory label to the left of the poster board is available in the PDF below.
The blurb on the poster board, including the reproduction Teign Valley closure notice and a map of what an extensive local public transport system looks like, can be found a little way down on the E. & T.V.R. "The Railway" pages:
Some pictures of the Pumphouse being erected can be seen here:

The sketchy part is what happened and what is its fate. I did find out that a circular going around the depot was the driver did a SPAD and then tried to rectify this by reversing it and then derailed on a point, whether this point was in the process of being cleared and if this was a routine clearing or if someone had realised what had just happened and tried to advert disaster further is not known, but it did a Long Rock depot HST on it anyway. The unit at one point was going for repairs at Wabtec but this has obviously changed, it is known that DB Regio a subsidiary of Arriva are footing the bill if repairs are done as the incident happened before they handed over the reigns back to Nexus. I'm not sure if that has anything to do with its move further south perhaps eventually going to Arriva's depot at Canton, but others are now saying it has been officially withdrawn being beyond economical repair. Tyne and Wear's sole depot of South Gosforth has got space issues and there has been rumour the repairs are beyond the depots capability, but these sets are supposed to be gradually withdrawn in the near future as Nexus are currently in the process of getting tenders for new sets in the 2020's with Bombardier being one of the bidders.

Many thanks to both Guy Vincent and Karl Hewlett for your time and trouble. We await further news of 994022.
