L411 Shipton 22 July 1980

L411 (51388, 59498 & 51346) passes through Shipton station on 22 July 1980 with the 2A97 17:41 Worcester Foregate Street to Didcot service. The Great Malvern destination blind is clearly no help to anyone! The last remnants of Shipton station's former goods yard can be seen in the foreground. The concrete coal staithes were removed shortly afterwards, and the whole grass covered area that was formerly a siding was converted into a coal park for the flour mill that dominates the background.
