55033 Bledlow 29 June 1986

55033 very slowly passes the flower edged platform of the closed station at Bledlow on 29 June 1986, as it becomes the first passenger train from Thame for over 20 years, with the Hertfordshire Railtours 11:35 Thame to High Wycombe 'Thame Phoenix' railtour. The very slow speed was because it is approaching the Sandpit Lane level crossing. Bledlow station closed in 1963, but the line remained open for oil trains going to Thame until 1991. The line was then lifted, although the rails are still in the road at Sandpit Lane.
