Marton Junction 2 June 1984

Snowford Farm watches over the rusting remains of the Southam Cement Works Branch on 2 June 1984. This view is just a short distance from Marton Junction, where the branch curves through almost 90 degrees away from the line from Rugby. This was once part of the LNWR's through route from Warwick to Bletchley via Daventry. Cement traffic had virtually finished by this time and apart from the extraordinary time and money wasting visit of the weedkilling train the following year, saw no further traffic until the line was lifted in the 1990s.
