SP6933 : Buckingham Station

taken 56 years ago, near to Buckingham, Buckinghamshire, Great Britain

Buckingham Station
Buckingham Station
View NW, towards Banbury; ex-London & North Western, Bletchley - Verney Junction - Banbury line. Buckingham - Banbury was closed 2/1/61 and the station closed to passengers on 7/9/64, but the line from Verney Junction was not finally closed until 5/12/66. It looks healthy enough, if deserted, in this 1962 picture. Evidently the platforms were rather low, as moveable steps can be seen on the right.
