L404 Finstock 10 April 1987

Rush hour at Finstock on 10 April 1987! Six passengers get ready to board the 2A12 07:45 Moreton-in-Marsh to Reading Network SouthEast service, worked by L404 (51379, 59489 & 51337). Although this diminutive wayside halt was only served by three trains a day in 1987, that is still 50% better than today's service of just one train in each direction. In 1987 there was an additional early morning southbound working - the 2A04 06:10 Moreton-in-Marsh to Oxford. The station had just been reconstructed on the opposite side of the line, allegedly to avoid passengers having to cross the busy road bridge.
