The Friends of Buxton Station have done quite a bit to make the place more cheerful and welcoming. With the help of Buxton folk, they have installed several works of art including a statue made from salvaged scrap metal taken from the demolished Buxton Traction Maintenance Depot that used to sit diagonally opposite the main station building. Made by Andy Hill (www.ferrassic-park.co.uk), it was named Joe by celebrated comedian Alexei Sayle in honour of his Dad, Joseph Henry – a lifelong Railway Guard. Joe stands on Platform 2.
