L591 Kingham 23 April 1983

L591 (51102, 59433 & 51059) arrives at Kingham station on 23 April 1983 with the 2A77 06:24 Great Malvern to Oxford service. The austere modern brick building had been built a few years earlier, as the former large Great Western Railway brick station building was under utilised, after the closure of the Banbury to Cheltenham line, and the removal of Kingham's junction status. Note the tiny partly unsurfaced car park (still more than adequate in 1983!) and the fact that it was obviously still possible to send large parcels by rail from this rural station.
