Toddington 14 October 1979

Toddington station in limbo on 14 October 1979, three years after the line was closed and just a few weeks before the track was lifted. Of course this location looks very different now, as it is the thriving hub of the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway, who took over the site in 1981. Happily all the GWR brick built buildings seen here survived. The station had closed in 1960 and the once extensive sidings lifted, leaving just the one visible on the left for use by engineers trains.
