Progress put in reverse by Dr Beeching
10:00am Wednesday 21st November 2012 in Letters
Sir – I recently saw the following notice reproduced in a book, which may be of some interest:
November 16th 1861
Grand Opening of Witney Station
WITNEY TO OXFORD
Stopping at South Leigh, Cassington Halt and Eynsham.
Witney to Oxford 35 mins.
This was 150 years ago and thanks to the visionary Dr Beeching isn’t possible now.
I wonder if it would now be acceptable in this modern age ?
