47801 Bromsgrove 23 September 1989

47801 passes Bromsgrove station on 23 September 1989 with the 1E29 06:10 Plymouth to York service. Only five coaches, but it does include a buffet restaurant vehicle! This view has changed completely since this picture was taken. A second platform and footbridge was added the following year, obviating the need for down trains to cross over to access the single platform seen here. In 2016 a brand new station, situated in the background of this view, was opened, replacing this one. The prominent oil depot storage tanks have also now gone.
