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


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 ?
