150101 Combe 17 March 1994

A rare picture of passengers at Combe station on the Cotswold Line! 3 customers await the arrival of 150101 with the only up train of the day to call at the diminutive station - the 07:00 Worcester to Oxford service. This was on 17 March 1994, when the service was operated by Regional Railways, who had threatened to close both Combe and Finstock stations due to lack of patronage. Perhaps the locals were worried, as the platform fence had just been renewed, and the usual sign that a station is about to be closed is that some money is spent on it after years of neglect!
