Shuttle train from Harrow and Wealdstone to Belmont, Middlesex
The branch line from Harrow had originally extended to Stanmore Village station, but by the time the above photograph was taken in 1956 it had been cut back to Belmont. The service was usually worked by a push-pull fitted Fowler 2-6-2 tank engine and two bogie coaches, as seen here, although an early diesel train was also given trials here at about this time. The service was a casualty of the Beeching cuts and the last train ran in October 1964.
