1001 Chalford 6 July 2019

1001 passes the site of Chalford station on 6 July 2019 with the Hastings Diesels Ltd 1Z77 07:55 Hastings to Parkend 'Dean Forest Foray' railtour. Class 202 S60118 Tunbridge Wells is leading. As can be seen from the bundled logs on the right, this location has recently been cleared of vegetation, although this did not extended to the lush foliage growing in the 'four foot' of the down line! The new houses on the left, at the end of the appropriately named Old Station Close, occupy the site of the little GWR station that was the terminus for the famous 'Chalford Flyer' - the auto train from Gloucester that served the numerous wayside halts in the Stroud Valley.
