Looks a lot cleaner and tidier than it did fifty years ago.

Now, THAT is a memorable shot.

Nice one, John.

Reasonably clean. Weeds growing in the paving though. I'm sure between trains that could be addressed!

Alan, the station was rebuilt in the late 70s, the new station is very nice but it doesn't have the atmosphere of the old station.

Sorry Kath, my fault not Brian's. A typo, carelessness rather than ignorance. Thank you for all the comments folks, on this and the last two pictures, they are appreciated.
